What your membership means

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

As the sole representative of fee-for-service physicians, the AMA:

  • Negotiates with Alberta Health and manages the global physician services budget.
  • Works with physicians and government to develop alternate payment mechanisms and health care delivery models.
  • Promotes quality health care issues and advocates on various health-promotion and disease-prevention issues.

Working together with our members, we make sure that the voice of physicians is heard – by government, Alberta Health Services, other health care professionals and the public:

Provincial and national representation

The AMA is a provincial division of the Canadian Medical Association (CMA) and one of the 12 provincial and territorial medical association collaborators at the national level.

The CMA unites the voice of the medical profession in Canada. It draws on the passion, knowledge and skill of its tens of thousands of members to advocate for a healthy population and a vibrant medical profession.

The Canadian Medical Association will now be collecting its membership dues directly from members in Alberta, rather than through the AMA. Be part of the movement of physicians and medical learners who are driving health care reform at the national level by joining or renewing your membership with the CMA. Please use their online form or contact their Member Service Centre at Please note that members must first renew their AMA membership before being able to renew their CMA membership.
