2023 RFS Annual Meeting highlights


The AMA Resident and Fellow Section (RFS) held its annual meeting on Friday, June 9 in Chicago with more than 85 residents and fellows representing 15 states and 18 specialty societies.

The RFS Assembly considered one report and 16 resolutions prompting robust discussion on important issues affecting trainees such as scope of practice, confidentiality of sexual orientation and gender identity data, non-compete clauses in employment contracts, and gun violence.

The section immediately transmitted five resolutions to the House of Delegates for consideration at its June 2023 Meeting. Learn more about these and other policies considered by the AMA House of Delegates.
