Today, medical families are busy and concerned about their future. The AMA Alliance is helping—with tools, materials and programs that are easily accessible, addressing work/life balance and physician family wellness. In 2012, the AMA Alliance is offering personal development seminars, workshops and events, and an array of discount programs that will deliver savings not available elsewhere.
Your fellow members are one of the greatest benefits of your Alliance membership! Explore the different ways that this community can improve your life and your family’s lives.
• AMA Alliance members belong to a network of 18,000 physician families from more than 460 counties and 40 states throughout the nation, which provide the all-important grassroots strength of the Alliance.
• You have access to a wonderful nationwide network of people, resources and opportunity for physicians and their families.
• The AMA Alliance provides social networking opportunities through the Alliance President’s Blog, on Facebook and through our Physicians-in-Training blog.
The AMA Alliance is one of the strongest voices supporting physician families and the future of medicine in this country. The involvement of individual physicians and their spouses is vital to the success of our grassroots lobbying efforts. Better than any professional lobbyist in Washington, Alliance members can give federal legislators the most accurate picture of how the issues really affect the practice of medicine.
