The Rural Physician Section was established at the January 2012 Board of Trustees meeting in recognition that rural physicians are not adequately represented by existing component and specialty societies within the OMA.
Becoming a member of the Rural Physician Section gives you a voice with OMA leadership and staff about what it means to practice as a rural physician. The Rural Physician Section will develop its own charter and elect a trustee to serve as a voting member on the OMA Board of Trustees. Your section will help create poilcy that makes a difference in the issues that matter most to rural physicians. Your input is critical to identifying these issues and ensuring that rural interests are adequately represented to OMA leaderhsip, your peers and in OMA legislative and advocacy efforts.
