Available Positions:
ACPM's YPS Delegate to the AMA YPS Assembly


We are now accepting nominations for members of the Young Physician Section (YPS) who are interested in representing ACPM's YPS as a delegate to the American Medical Association (AMA) YPS Assembly.  After two rounds of elections, one of two delegate positions remains available.

ACPM YPS delegates act as liaisons between the ACPM YPS and the AMA YPS Assembly.

Twice a year, ACPM's YPS sends two delegates to the AMA's YPS assembly. At each AMA House of Delegates meeting, more than 100 AMA YPS delegates take part in the AMA YPS Assembly. ACPM YPS delegates have full voting privileges in the Assembly and vote to establish AMA YPS policy.

Delegates also provide policy information and develop tools and services targeted for the individual young physician members of ACPM. Delegates must be AMA members and able to attend the semi-annual AMA YPS Assembly without financial assistance. ACPM does not subsidize travel or registration.

The two upcoming AMA conference dates are:

  • June 15-19, 2013 in Chicago, IL- Hyatt Regency Chicago
  • November 16-19, 2013 in National Harbor, MD- Gaylord National Hotel

Acceptance of nominations will close at 5:00pm (Eastern) on this date. The YPS President will review CVs and Statements of Interest received, and will appoint the YPS delegate.

PLEASE NOTE: ALL CVs should be in the format provided here to ensure concise and consistent formatting among applicants. All ACPM YPS members in good standing are welcome to submit self nominations. Candidates must also be current members of the American Medical Association (AMA).
