An excellent way for emergency physicians to get involved in organized medicine is to represent their hospital in the AMA’s Organized Medical Staff Section.
Only a small percentage of hospitals are currently represented in that section, and there is room for steady growth.
The Section develops policy and plays an important role in the AMA; significant emergency medicine representation there could have a big impact.

The challenge now is to lead the way, to take the risk, to create a future in medicine that will serve our patients and our colleagues for generations.
