The American Medical Group Association's continuing medical education program strives to develop high quality learning activities to respond to the educational needs of group practice physicians in leadership positions. The Association's continuing medical education activities enable its members to share information and innovations in order to remain current and continually improve patient care by advancing the group practice model as the preferred method of health care delivery. The Association accomplishes this goal by offering timely, unparalleled learning activities including an annual conference, regional meetings and distance learning tools.
AMGA advocates for the multispecialty group practice model of healthcare delivery and for the patients served by medical groups through innovation and information sharing, benchmarking, and continuous striving to improve patient care. The Board of Directors of AMGA has made a firm commitment to CME by creating and maintaining a committee of the membership, The Education Committee, to provide input and direction to the staff of the association to assist in the development of timely, relevant educational activities which will support the overall mission of the association.
The purpose of AMGA's CME program is to help reform the health care system by responding to the educational needs of physicians in leadership positions. AMGA strives to identify high quality, timely learning activities in areas of leadership development, care process improvement, information technology, practice management, and legislative issues of importance. The Association's educational activities are targeted to physician and non-physician administrators of the nation's multispecialty medical groups.
AMGA offers several continuing medical education activities across the United States to allow the physician leaders an opportunity to attend. AMGA holds one Annual Conference of the association each year as well as several regional meetings and one-and two day seminars.
Specific goals of the CME activities are to encourage and assist in the development of the physician and non-physician leaders of multispecialty group practices so they may remain current and to advance the multispecialty medical group model as the preferred delivery system for patient-centered, affordable, quality medical care in America.
The American Medical Group Association is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to sponsor continuing medical education for physicians. The American Medical Group Association (AMGA) takes responsibility for the content, quality, and scientific integrity of this CME activity. AMGA designates certain educational activities in category 1 credit toward the AMA Physician's Recognition Award. Each physician should claim only those hours of credit he/she actually spent in the activity.
A meeting or activity may qualify for continuing education credit in the American College of Medical Practice Executives (ACMPE). To apply for ACMPE credit, submit the ACMPE generic credit hour form with a copy of the meeting brochure. Copies of those credit hour forms will be available at the time of the program.
