Advocacy for You and Your Patients
The Minnesota Medical Association is the only organization that represents all physicians in Minnesota, regardless of specialty or practice size.
- At the Capitol: The MMA follows hundreds of legislative bills each session, ensuring physician voices are represented at the Capitol.
- In the Courtroom: The MMA advocates for physicians by filing amicus briefs in cases that have the potential to widely impact Minnesota physicians and patients from a legal and/or public policy perspective. Most recently, these efforts included filing an amicus brief in Warren v. Dinter – a case where the Minnesota Supreme Court issued a ruling that the existence of a physician-patient relationship is not a prerequisite for a medical malpractice action.
Continuing Medical Education and Professional Development
From CME and MOC credit available through webinars and in-person events to committee leadership opportunities and policy discussions, the MMA offers a variety of ways for physicians to learn and engage with their peers. Opportunities include:
- Doctors’ Lounge networking events
- Annual Conference
- Online educational content designed to fulfill the 2020 state opioid education mandate
- Membership on committees and task forces
