Your delegates to the 2013 ISMA annual convention adopted two resolutions requesting the ISMA to seek action from the AMA at its interim meeting in November. Both resolutions were presented and acted upon.
ISMA Resolution 13-29 – Improving the Affordable Care Act, which is now AMA Resolution 204, was referred to the AMA Board for “time certain” action. It will be reported on during the June 2014 AMA annual meeting and includes a list of suggested improvements to the law.
ISMA Resolution 13-14 – Reimbursement for Eating Disorders, now AMA Resolution 804, was reaffirmed since the AMA has existing policy on this issue.
Also, medical students from IU School of Medicine (IUSM) and Marian University College of Osteopathic Medicine attended the AMA-MSS interim meeting in Maryland, Nov. 14-16. Students from across the nation discussed topics such as the role of medical students in developing health information technology, a unified accreditation system for allopathic and osteopathic physicians, and the efficacy and safety of mobile medical applications.
