AMA Representation of Clinical ARP physicians

Clinical ARP Working Group

The Working Group brings together AMA physician leaders involved in clinical ARPs to understand and advocate for the needs and concerns of current and prospective clinical ARP physicians. As a conduit between grass roots clinical ARP physicians and the AMA, the Working Group includes 10 appointed physician authorized representatives from various existing clinical ARPs in Alberta, along with one member appointed by the Specialty Care Alliance and one member jointly appointed by the Sections of Family Medicine and Rural Medicine.
