The Forum for Medical Affairs was established nearly 40 years ago “to further the aims and ideals of organized medicine by providing annual programs for its members on important issues facing the profession.” The Forum presents its annual program in conjunction with the Interim Meeting of the American Medical Association’s House of Delegates.
Members of the Forum include the members of the AMA House of Delegates, and the presidents, presidents-elect, past presidents and executive directors of all State Medical Societies and AMA-recognized National Specialty Medical Societies. Once qualified as a member of the Forum, you are considered a member for life.
