Ohio Delegation to the AMA

The Ohio Delegation to the American Medical Association (AMA) provides Ohio physicians a voice in the governance of the AMA. The delegates and alternate delegates elected by the OSMA House of Delegates represent varied medical disciplines and geographic practice locations in Ohio. Currently, Ohio is eligible for 12 delegates and a corresponding number of alternate delegates to represent Ohio in the AMA's governance structure. In addition, the AMA Medical Student Section is afforded regional representation, and the Ohio delegation invites any elected Ohio-based regional student representative to participate on the delegation. The Ohio delegation is an active participant in the AMA's House of Delegates which convenes twice a year (Annual Meeting and Interim Meeting) to review and decide on issues important to physicians and their medical practices.
The Ohio delegation's participation in the AMA allows physicians the opportunity to participate in a national forum on issues important to the medical profession. The AMA provides a powerful voice in Congress, the courts and federal agencies. The AMA also provides its members with numerous sources of information about physician's practices and the profession. In tandem, the OSMA and the AMA work effectively to represent the interests of Ohio physicians.
Members of the Ohio Delegation to the AMA must be active members of both the American Medical Association and the Ohio State Medical Association. Elections are held at the OSMA Annual Meeting, with members being elected for 2-year terms. Delegation members attend all sessions of the AMA House of Delegates and all Ohio AMA delegation functions.
