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:
