The Alberta Medical Association is recruiting one physician representative from amongst those groups considering entering the Academic Medicine Health Services Plan (AMHSP) in a new arrangement, which includes academic physicians in medical genetics and psychiatry.

As noted in the December 12, 2018 Presidents Letter, ”We’ve been preparing to do our best for you and realigning the AMA to make sure that academic issues are heard. This includes establishing an AMHSP Council. The council’s mandate includes providing advice to the Provincial Operations and Strategy Committees as well as appointing the AMHSP Negotiating Committee for the 2020 renegotiation of the Master Agreement and the Individual Services Agreements….” The composition of the council includes representatives from each AMHSP plan, AMA representatives from the Provincial Operations and Strategy Committee and one representative amongst physicians considering participation in an AMHSP.

We anticipate the appointment will be confirmed sometime before the end of February 2019. We will notify appointees shortly after that time.
