We all make a difference

We know Alberta has some of the finest, hardest-working physicians in the country. Our members are committed to helping build a sustainable, successful and innovative health care system, supported by a diverse, inclusive and thriving profession. In celebration of all that hard work and dedication to your patients and practices, the AMA is proud to recognize members (physicians, residents and medical students) who are Making a Difference, many in ways that they aren’t even aware of. Or are too busy to realize!

Patients First®


Alberta’s doctors, through the Alberta Medical Association, have established albertapatients – an online, members-only health care forum – to engage in dialogue about health care in our province. Albertan's have a voice and Alberta’s doctors want to hear it.
