SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) So I was looking into getting my Virginia license so that I can moonlight in the state of VA. And I happened to notice that to get a VA license I have to be a part of the AMA. This struck me as odd because really I do not know what the AMA does for me and my interests. What is the point of registering with the AMA and is their any way to opt out? PS I know this is not directly anesthesia related but I am interested in what my anesthesia colleagues think.
