The California Medical Association (CMA) has released its 2020 Model Medical Staff Bylaws. These bylaws are the definitive guide for medical staffs, providing details on professional and legal structures to support effective medical staff operations and self-governance.

During the COVID-19 public health emergency, CMA would like to draw attention to two sections of the CMA Model Medical Staff Bylaws that may be particularly helpful to medical staffs:

  • Disaster Privileges (Section 5.8)
  • Telemedicine (Section 5.5)

The model bylaws are fully annotated to provide background information on critical provisions, including explanations of relevant state and federal laws, hospital accreditation standards and other explanatory information. 

The CMA Model Medical Staff Bylaws are available free to any medical staff with an active membership in CMA’s Organized Medical Staff Section (OMSS). If your medical staff is not already an OMSS member, join today.

The model bylaws are also available to nonmembers for a fee.

Contact: CMA-OMSS, (800) 786-4262 or email us.
