American Medical Association

American Medical Association The American Medical Association (AMA) is a professional association and lobbying group of physicians and medical students. It was founded in 1847, is based in Chicago, Illinois, and has over 240,000 members.

The AMA's stated mission is "to promote the art and science of medicine and the betterment of public health." The Association also publishes the ''Journal of the American Medical Association'' (JAMA). The AMA also publishes a list of Physician Specialty Codes which are the standard method in the U.S. for identifying physician and practice specialties.

The American Medical Association is governed by a House of Delegates as well as a board of trustees in addition to executive management. The organization maintains the AMA Code of Medical Ethics that is the guide to ethical practice of medicine and the AMA Physician Masterfile containing data on United States Physicians. The ''Current Procedural Terminology'' coding system was first published in 1966 and is maintained by the Association. It has also published works such as the ''Guides to Evaluation of Permanent Impairment'' and established the American Medical Association Foundation and the American Medical Political Action Committee.

Susan R. Bailey, an allergist and immunologist from Fort Worth, Texas, was sworn in as President in June 2020. The AMA has now, for the first time in its history, had three consecutive female physicians as president. At a Special Meeting of the House of Delegates in 2020, Gerald E. Harmon was voted as president-elect, to be inaugurated in 2021.

Russ Kridel, a facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon, currently serves as Chair of the AMA Board of Trustees. Provided by Wikipedia
