For those who promote “Let’s forget organized medicine and just do our own thing,” what will you do about those who espouse the following policies?

Comment:  Organized medicine has publicly stated that it shall work to develop strategies, become actively involved in lobbying and communicating with state officials when confronted with "attempts by non-physicians to expand scope of practice via state legislation."

Scope of practice:  The procedures, actions, and processes that a healthcare practitioner is permitted to undertake in keeping with the terms of their professional license.

What are you doing on the behalf of your profession to counteract their strategic lobbying efforts?

Excerpt:  AMA, when confronted with attempts by non-physicians to expand scope of practice via state legislation, shall work at the invitation of its component societies to develop strategies to most effectively promote and protect the best interest of our patients, and shall become actively involved in lobbying and/or communicating with state officials at the request of the state medical associations. Prior to placing targeted advertising, AMA will contact the relevant state medical associations and/or specialty societies for the purpose of enhancing communication about AMA’s planned activities.

For those who promote “Let’s forget organized medicine and just do our own thing,” what will you do about those who espouse the following policies?

Comment:  Organized medicine overtly states that non-physicians should not evaluate the professional practices of fully licensed physicians.  

Is it suitable that physicians seek to exclude "outsiders" from evaluating their own members? Do you really want them making the determination of what it is that you you are capable of, when the same courtesy is not to be afforded to you?

Monopoly:  the exclusive possession or control of the supply or trade in a commodity or service.

Excerpt:  AMA encourages medical staff peer review committees to consider excluding non-physicians when evaluating the professional practices of fully licensed physicians.
