What your AMA membership means

The AMA is the professional organization representing Alberta physicians and the medical profession across the province.

During your residency, your membership in the Professional Association of Resident Physicians of Alberta (PARA) will provide you with support, resources and representation, including negotiating your working contract.

PARA works with the AMA’s ADIUM Insurance Services Inc. to provide benefits for resident physicians, and PARA advocates on your behalf in several ways within the AMA.

The AMA will continue to act on your behalf as you transition to practice and build your career. The AMA:

  • Negotiates with Alberta Health and manages the physician services budget.
  • Proactively develops alternate payment mechanisms and health care delivery models.
  • Highlights quality care issues through the Health Issues Council and public awareness campaigns.

We make sure your voice is heard – by government, Alberta Health Services, other health care professionals and the public.

As an AMA member, we welcome your feedback, input and participation:
