AMA Data Request on Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity Data Collection

06/03/2019

The American Medical Association (AMA) represents all of America’s physicians regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, national origin, color, ethnicity, religion, disability or other characteristics, without discrimination or bias. Understanding the needs of all physicians means collecting vital demographic data. Our House of Delegates adopted a new policy that addresses learning more about the physician population, specifically as it relates to sexual orientation and gender identity. Having this information means the AMA will be better equipped to meet the specific needs—and better reflect the makeup—of the nation’s increasingly diverse physician community.

We are asking for your help in requesting your members’ data.  Please ask them to fill out the survey linked below. Physician responses to the AMA’s request for this personal information are entirely voluntary and will be kept completely confidential. No physician will be required to provide this information.

Physicians can access or create a free account at https://fsso.ama-assn.org/login/account/login and provide this information.
