AAGP at the AMA

from By Allan A. Anderson, MD, AAGP Past President (2011-2012)

Over the past two years I have represented the AAGP at the annual and interim meetings of the American Medical Association. This is the first time that our organization has had a formal association with the AMA. In the past, AAGP member James Greene, MD, had attended the AMA and had supported a formal relationship. Given the ever-changing practice of medicine and the role the AMA has in this, the AAGP board of directors has supported the AAGP gaining a more formal association. In June of 2013 I represented the AAGP as a member of the AMA Specialty and Service Society. The SSS, or Triple S as it is known, is an organization of physician specialty groups that meets at the AMA meeting. It is comprised of organizations that currently have delegate status at the AMA and others, like AAGP, who do not. In addition to gaining some representation at the AMA by joining the SSS it is expected that organizations apply for formal AMA delegate status within three years of SSS membership. As we are entering our third year of SSS representation we can now apply for delegate status.

There are three benefits from being a member of the House of Delegates of the AMA. more
