AMPAC is the bipartisan political action committee of the American Medical Association. AMPAC’s mission is to find and support candidates for Congressional offices, whether it is a new candidate for office who will make physicians and patients a top priority, or a candidate running for reelection who has proven to be a friend of medicine.
AMPAC is an important part of the AMA’s overall advocacy efforts, because it gives physicians a tangible means to support candidates who will help medicine in Congress. AMPAC supports candidates entirely with money raised from membership dues from AMPAC members, therefore a contribution made to a candidate by AMPAC represents the support of thousands of physicians who themselves contributed to AMPAC.
AMPAC also strives to help more physicians get personally involved in politics, and holds several workshops each year to educate physicians about the intricacies of politics and political campaigns. There are several levels to show your AMPAC support, click here to learn more about AMPAC’s contribution levels.
