The deadline to submit nominations is Friday, May 26, 2023

Please see the following annual call for applications/nominations for interested resident physician members to serve on the California Medical Association (CMA) Resident and Fellow Section (RFS) delegation to the House of Delegates (HOD). 

RFS is currently seeking engaged and interested members to join their section and represent them at the 2023 House of Delegates. RFS is allocated 12 delegates and 12 alternates corresponding to Districts 1-11 and members involved in a military training program. 

Resident and fellow delegate/alternate seats are one-year terms, during which the delegates and alternates will attend the House of Delegates, participate in the year-round resolution process, and engage with RFS on projects and policy discussions.


  • Delegates: Districts 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, and military programs
  • Alternates: Districts 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, and military programs

Please note that although the RFS has the ability to seat residents from outside of the district when necessary, it is our preference to seat a resident or fellow who lives or works in the district.
