Residents & Students

AMPAC highly values resident physicians and medical students. As the future of medicine, your involvement with AMPAC strengthens the voice of organized medicine. Furthermore, your participation allows AMPAC to support federal candidates who understand the critical issues residents and students face.

The AMA advocates for many legislative issues on behalf of residents and students. Some of those issues include:

  • Medical Student Debt
  • Resident and Student Work Conditions
  • Clinical Skills Assessment Exam
  • Medical Education

The interests of resident physicians and medical students are also represented on the AMPAC Board. The AMPAC Board consists of ten physicians, one resident physician and one medical student who all serve two-year terms.
