Every year, physicians and friends of medicine confront the challenges in liability, reimbursement, scope-of-practice and administrative burdens. And every year, more and more physicians and friends of medicine realize that involvement in the political process is not a luxury or something to do in your spare time; it is a necessity.
Members of the medical community involved in a campaign or considering seeking public office will get the skills and answers they need in AMPAC’s Political Education Programs. AMPAC, a pioneer in membership association political action, has offered these programs for over 25 years. Graduates have gone on to win election to public office at every level across the country, from Alderman and City Councilman to U.S. Congressman and Senator!
If you are interested in doing more for medicine, please read more about AMPAC’s Political Education Programs at left. The Campaign School trains physicians to work on campaigns and become sought after activists. The Candidate Workshop prepares physicians to make their own run for public office. And the Regional Campaign and Grassroots Seminars, held in partnership with state medical societies across the country, give physicians a crash course in political and grassroots tactics.
For those AMA members accepted into the Candidate Workshop and Campaign School, AMPAC covers all costs (except transportation). This includes meals, lodging, faculty and materials, and is an outstanding value for AMA members. Questions? Please explore the menu items at left or email us.
