The Young Physicians Section (YPS) seeks to strengthen the value of AMA membership for young physicians by:

  • Enhancing young physician practice of medicine, including the transition into practice
  • Facilitating the participation of young physicians in policymaking and other activities of the AMA and the Federation of Medicine
  • Promoting young physician leadership throughout organized medicine

AMA physician members under 40 years of age or within the first 8 years of professional practice after residency and fellowship training are automatically members of YPS. YPS currently has more than 26,000 members.

The YPS Strategic Plan (PDF) describes YPS focus areas and outlines YPS efforts around communication, leadership development, and membership and involvement opportunities.
