American Medical Association

The American Medical Association is leading meaningful innovation to enable a better health care system for patients, physicians and the country. The AMA is uniquely positioned to deliver results-focused strategies that enable physicians to enhance the delivery of care and improve the health of the nation.

Together, the AMA and the Colorado Medical Society have helped block health insurance mega-mergers, enact laws and develop best practices to combat the opioid epidemic and simplify administrative burden on physicians and practices. They also work closely on Medicaid expansion, helping more patients receive health care.


Your membership in the AMA supports action

In addition to your CMS membership, we encourage Colorado physicians to join the AMA to strengthen organized medicine’s efforts within our state and across the nation. We are proud of the work and the outcomes we accomplish together on behalf of our profession. Your membership makes this work possible.

Your AMA membership benefits include:

  • The JAMA Network®, which brings together JAMA and nine specialty journals to offer fully integrated access to the research, reviews and perspectives shaping the future of medicine (valued at more than $250)
  • Free CME to help you meet your professional education needs
  • Free webinars on topics such as opioid prescribing and innovations in payment and delivery models
  • Savings on products and services for you and your practice through the AMA Member Value Program

 

Additionally, CMS delegates to the AMA House of Delegates serve as an important link to communications, policy and membership between the AMA and grass-roots physicians, and AMA members are eligible to apply for and attend AMPAC’s Campaign School and Candidate Workshop. AMPAC graduates have been elected to public offices across the country, including the U.S. Congress.

You will see the AMA dues included on the dues statements you receive from CMS. We urge you to continue your membership in the CMS and the AMA—and we make it easy for you to do that through CMS.

Become a Partner in Medicine

The Partner in Medicine Program allows The Colorado Medical Society to expand our offerings to our membership. Every opportunity to engage with the members of CMS provides the industry representative opportunities to educate our members on the products and services of your company. Your partnership affords your representatives to engage with the members of CMS in a meaningful way allowing them to share their knowledge of its products and services and participate in educational sessions. This helps ensure that the physician and practices in our community at large are learning, sharing best practices, and finding solutions to problems together.


2021 CMS Partner in Medicine Benefits

At each level, your sponsorship allows CMS to:

  • Provide valuable educational offerings to our members and their staff;
  • Engage in advocacy on behalf of the profession and the patients our members serve; and,
  • Support awareness, knowledge, access to clinical trials, and the latest in industry innovation products and services.

It is important to note that enhanced levels of membership provide expanded interaction with CMS members. These interactions are intended and required to be purely educational in content. Our members look to our Partners in Medicine members for information and knowledge on issues impacting health care from a state, national, and global perspective. Apart from display opportunities, issues specific to product promotion are neither allowed nor encouraged. Partners in Medicine participation does not provide for any conditions of purchase, use, or recommendation of products associated with this membership.

Please contact Dianna Fetter at dianna_fetter@cms.org or 720-858-6321 if interested in becoming a Partner in Medicine or for more information.
