Resources for physicians returning to clinical practice


The AMA defines physician re-entry as "a return to clinical practice in the discipline in which one has been trained or certified following an extended period of clinical inactivity not resulting from discipline or impairment." 

Half the dues, all the AMA benefits!

  • Free access to JAMA Network™ and CME
  • Save hundreds on insurance
  • Fight for physicians and patient rights

The AMA, through its Council on Medical Education, continues to have an active interest in this area. Extensive information regarding physician re-entry can be found at the Physician Re-entry Into the Workforce Project.
