Why Join the AMA?

In order to best serve the arthroplasty sub-specialty we must continue to be represented in all facets of the house of medicine, which includes the American Medical Association (AMA). Your membership in the AMA not only provides resources to you for your practice but also strengthens AAHKS’ representation in the AMA House of Delegates (HOD)—the policymaking body of the AMA—and allows us to have a collective voice through which we can bring forth the perspectives and interests of our specialty. Full story and link to join.
