AMA Senior Physicians Recognition Month logo

In honor of Older Americans Month, the AMA celebrates senior physician members in the month of May.

Senior physicians bring a wealth of experience to their communities and play a vital role in their patients’ health. They can stay active and involved with the AMA while they practice medicine and following retirement.

Any AMA physician 65 years and above is an automatic member of the AMA Senior Physicians Section (SPS), whether working full time, part time or fully retired. The SPS tackles issues related to ageism, senior physician competency, hearing loss, healthy aging and more.

Learn how the SPS gives voice to and advocates for issues that impact senior physicians, and explore opportunities to get involved.
