Help Us Bridge the Gap - Join the AMA!

Posted Thursday, September 5th, 2013

With your help we have made continued progress in 2013 towards the goal of a physician-run specialty. We would like to especially thank you for being a member of the American Medical Association (AMA).

However, AAEM currently does not have the ability to hold seats in the American Medical Association House of Delegates (AMA HOD) as we do not have enough members who belong to the AMA. Help us increase the number of AAEM members who also hold AMA membership so we can add our voice to the deliberations. Having the support of physicians from many specialties can help us resolve some of EM’s most important problems. As the nation's health care system continues to evolve, AAEM would like to ask for your help in advocating for the medical profession, your specialty, and your patients by encouraging your fellow AAEM colleagues to join the American Medical Association (AMA).

The AMA is aggressively involved in advocacy efforts related to the most vital issues in medicine today, including medical liability reform, Medicare physician payment reform, expanding coverage for the uninsured and increasing access to care, improving the public health, managed care reform, and more. In addition, the AMA has a robust House of Delegates (HOD) consisting of representation from every state and medical society.

Thank you again for allowing us to be one step closer in giving us a voice in the AMA House of Delegates.
