Massachusetts Medical Society: Organized Medical Staff Section

Organized Medical Staff Section

The Organized Medical Staff Section (OMSS) provides a representational forum for physicians practicing in organized medical staffs. The Section identifies and articulates the concerns of physicians with the medical staff structure, facilitates opportunities for focused discussion of these topics, and works to address these issues through MMS and AMA governance and education.   See Section Activities and OMSS Organizational Guidelines/ Bylaws   

The MMS-OMSS holds 4 to 5 Executive Committee (EC) meetings per year. In addition, EC members attend the interim and annual AMA-OMSS Assembly meetings. The Section has numerous representatives from medical staffs across the state attend these meetings. The Great Atlantic Seaboard Caucus meetings that are held prior to the AMA-OMSS Assembly are coordinated and attended by Massachusetts representatives.
