Resident Physician and Fellows Section (RPFS)

With 7,800 members from every specialty and practice setting, the Medical Association of Georgia (MAG) is the leading advocate for physicians in the state. MAG helps its members by addressing a wide array of issues in the legislative and legal and third party payer arenas.

The primary role of MAG’s Resident Physician and Fellows Section (RPFS) is to improve graduate medical education in the state. The RPFS is led by a governing council. The RPFS is also entitled to send representatives to MAG’s annual House of Delegates policy-making meeting.

Any physician who is in an approved residency or fellowship training program in Georgia can join MAG’s RPFS. RPFS dues are $75 for the duration of the physician’s residency or fellowship.

“I am honored to have been given the opportunity to serve as 'Doctor of the Day.' Having never been to a legislative session, it was incredibly informative. I especially enjoyed meeting fellow physicians serving as members of the Senate and House of Representatives. I aspire to make a similar impact in the future. [Nurse] Ruby ensured our clinic was efficient and organized. I would gladly volunteer at the clinic again and am thankful for this unique experience.” - Blake E. Christianson, M.D. 

“Being 'Doctor of the Day' was an enlightening experience. It allowed me the opportunity to meet and greet with key legislators. I felt a great pride for my state walking through the Capitol building. I am proud to be a Georgia state native. Thank you Dr. Harvey for providing this unique experience.” - Pedro A. Ramirez III, M.D.
