The AMA promotes the art and science of medicine and the betterment of public health through leadership, excellence, integrity and ethical behavior. The American Medical Association helps doctors help patients by uniting physicians nationwide to work on the most important professional and public health issues. AMA policy on issues in medicine and public health is decided through its democratic policy-making process, in the AMA House of Delegates. The AMA's activities with for-profit entities are directed by AMA guidelines for corporate relationships, and its Internet products follow AMA guidelines for health and information Web sites. Together, they play an active role in shaping the future of medicine.
