A great deal happens at the legislative level that can affect how physicians practice medicine and most physicians are acutely aware of that. Current research from Physicians’ Practice’s 2017 Great American Physician Survey states that doctors appear to be disillusioned with the healthcare/government sector as a whole.
Among the findings, the top three factors that physicians listed as their biggest frustrations were:
- Too much third-party interference (39%)
- Government regulations (14%)
- Declining ability to practice independently (13%)
While the current governmental landscape in regards to healthcare can be tedious to navigate, LACMA and California Medical Association offer a platform to ensure your voice is heard through the House of Delegates.
The CMA House of Delegates meets annually to establish broad policy on important issues dealing with policy matters concerning medical practice, public health and CMA governance.
LACMA is allotted 35 delegates to participate in CMA’s House of Delegates and represent their constituents by:
- Attending and actively participating in delegation caucus meetings and all sessions of the House.
- Communicate CMA policy, information, activities and programs to constituents
- Advocate constituent views within the House
- Report highlights of the House of Delegates meetings to constituents
- Participate in leadership development opportunities
LACMA is always seeking interested physician members who would like to serve on LACMA’s delegation to the CMA.
