Dear MedChi Members and Maryland Physicians:

Here's what we want to share with you today:



  • The AMA is advocating for physicians by asking the National Governors Association to support protections for physicians as the workforce expands in response to the pandemic. MedChi has advocated locally for similar protections in Maryland.

Thank you for all that you do as physicians, healers, and heroes.
