The American Medical Association once counted a majority of U.S. practicing physicians among its members, although today that figure is around 25%. Still, the association recently celebrated 10 years of consecutive membership growth, which CEO James Madara attributes to advocacy, embracing technological innovation and a focus on health care equity.

“The hypothesis was you engage physicians, you give them products that they need, and you can convert that into membership,” Madara told CEO Update.
