GAMPAC is the non-partisan political action committee of the Medical Association of Georgia. GAMPAC elects pro-physician candidates at the state level.

Members of the General Assembly consider important legislation in Georgia each and every year – measures that address key issues like state licensure, Medicaid pay, insurance reform, and tort reform. That is why it is imperative for physicians to establish genuine, trust-based relationships with legislators in the state. GAMPAC gives physicians the opportunity to build those kind of long-lasting bonds.

GAMPAC is an easy and effective way for physicians to support political candidates who want to enhance the practice environment in the state and who want to protect the patient-physician relationship.

With more than 380 members, GAMPAC has the resources and the brand recognition to be an effective advocate for physicians in Georgia. For example, GAMPAC supports candidates who…

  • Want to make sure that Georgians in rural parts of the state have access to the physicians they need
  • Believe that the state’s new prescription drug monitoring program will help curb prescription drug abuse
  • Want to preserve physician autonomy
  • Want to protect physicians from frivolous lawsuits 
  • Want to adequately fund the graduate medical education programs in Georgia
  • Support physician-led, patient-centered medical home health care teams 
  • Oppose new taxes or pay cuts for physicians

You can join GAMPAC at the level that suits your needs…
