Medical Staff

Medical staffs across California continue to face challenges, including threats to self-governance, increasing regulatory burdens of EMTALA, reductions in reimbursement, and ability to provide quality care with decreasing financial resources. 

The CMA Organized Medical Staff Section (OMSS) represents California hospital medical staffs and advocates for strong medical staff self-governance and quality patient care. OMSS membership supports legislative advocacy, policy development and legal action on medical staff issues. JOIN TODAY!
