The Young Physicians Section (YPS) represents the voice of young physicians and advocates for the issues that affect their practices and their patients.

Learn about our governing council and get involved with the Young Physicians Section Assembly.

The AMA and its members play a crucial role in shaping health policy at all levels. The YPS encourages young physicians to get involved in different parts of the policymaking process.


The YPS considers resolutions in its Annual and Interim Assembly meetings. The resolution deadline for each Annual Assembly Meeting of the YPS is April 30 and the resolution deadline for each Interim Assembly Meeting is Sept. 30. Resolutions can be submitted via email to [email protected].

The YPS through its Reference and HOD Handbook Review Committees help shape AMA policy by developing positions on issues of concern for young physicians. The Credentials Committee performs on-site credentialing verification of young physicians who have been selected to represent their state or specialty society or branch of the Federal Services.

To volunteer for one of these committees, submit your contact information and first, second and third choice of committee preferences to the YPS at [email protected].

You can also sign up to volunteer when registration opens for the YPS Assembly meeting.
