Our chapter serves to educate peers on health policy, advocate for legislative changes that benefit the medical profession, and conduct service projects for the local community. We represent the AMA at large, but our views and opinions are independent of the AMA.
The AMA Chapter at UCLA DGSOM is the local chapter of the national AMA. The AMA chapter is dedicated to informing our student body about health policy and the major issues both at the state and national level. We pride ourselves on also transforming policy into action-- we look to support important initiatives that improve access to high quality care in our local LA community. As part of being in the AMA, we hope to cultivate a group of student leaders who can become effective advocates and public figures in the future. As part of the AMA board, students have the opportunity to attend the AMA National Meetings and network with prominent residents and physicians who are active policy makers and health services researchers.
