Medical Staff

CMA's Organized Medical Staff Section (OMSS) represents medical staffs of California hospitals, health facilities and emerging delivery systems by providing education and advocating for strong self-governance and quality patient care. 

COVID-19 Resources

Check out CMA's COVID-19 resources for breaking news, physician toolkits on telehealth, financial assistance and employment issues, FAQs on the latest developments; and other resources to help physicians navigate the pandemic.  Medical staffs may be especially interested in the following resources:

2020 Assembly and Education Conference (VIRTUAL)

Due to the ongoing global pandemic, the annual conference will be held virtually on October 16, 2020. To increase participation, CMA is also developing educational and on-demand webinars for September and October. Bookmark this page for news and updates.
