Academic Medicine Health Services Program

AMHSP leaders represent the interest of physicians involved with the Academic Medicine Health Services Program.

What is the AMHSP?

The AMHSP was developed by Alberta Health, Alberta Health Services and the Universities to encourage retention and recruitment of physicians who provide the unique combination of innovative clinical, teaching, research and leadership/administrative activities. Currently there are ten Arrangements (see the table below) that have been created under the AMHSP Master Agreement and several more are expected to be created over the next few years. Participating physicians hold Individual Services Agreements under an AMHSP Arrangement.

Involvement in AMA

At the Representative Forum

AMHSP physicians elect four delegates to the RF through a two-step process. First, one physician is elected as a representative from each Arrangement (currently ten). These representatives then elect four (plus one alternate) from within their group to serve as delegates on the Representative Forum.

Through the AMA AMHSP Advisory Council

To ensure a broad representation of AMHSP physician interests, the AMA has also created the AMHSP Advisory Council to provide guidance and leadership on AMHSP matters and serve as a key conduit between grass roots AMHSP physicians and the AMA. The Council includes the ten elected Arrangement representatives, plus AMA representatives to the Provincial AMHSP Operations and Strategy Committee as well as a representative from those groups considering entering the AMHSP.
