Council on Health Professions and Quality of Care

The California Medical Association's (CMA) Council on Health Professions and Quality of Care studies and recommends policy concerning licensing, discipline, scope of practice, physician workforce, medical education, health facility, organized medical staffs and quality of care.

The Council serves as a reference committee for the House of Delegates if and when an issue of business has been assigned by the Speaker and the Committee of Delegation Chairs. These responsibilities include studying, soliciting testimony and making recommendations to the Board of Trustees on submitted resolutions in its issue areas.

The Council also provides oversight of the Subcommittee on Continuing Medical Education, Subcommittee on Medical Board of California and Subcommittee on Physician Wellness.
