Physicians in Congress
2012 was again a landmark election in terms of physician candidates, with 50 physicians running as challengers or in open seats for federal office at one point during the cycle. The 113th Congress will welcome two new physicians to the House of Representatives.
Twenty physicians are currently serving in the 113th Congress which include three senators, 16 representatives and one delegate. Seven of these members of Congress are graduates of AMPAC’s Candidate Workshop and/or Campaign School.
If you have ever thought of running for office, or working on a campaign, now’s the time to get involved. AMPAC’s Candidate Workshop, designed for those physicians, spouses and medical society staff who are interested in running for office will be held again in February 2013 in the Washington, D.C. area. For those individuals looking to volunteer on campaigns, the Campaign School will be held in April 2013.
