Young Physician Section (YPS)

The mission of the MAG Young Physician Section (YPS) is to strengthen the value of MAG to young physicians by…

– Being the voice of young physicians through policy development and advocacy.

– Promoting young physician leadership within MAG.

– Providing a forum for the education and dissemination of information unique to the needs of young physicians.

The YPS is led by a governing council and has a voting seat on MAG’s Board of Directors. It is also represented at MAG’s House of Delegates. MAG members who are under the age of 40 or are within their first eight years of practice automatically become YPS members.
