AMERICAN MEDICAL ASSOCIATION HOUSE OF DELEGATES
Resolution: 604

(A-04)
Introduced by: New York Delegation


Subject: Extending Membership Benefits to Students Enrolled in the Sophie Davis Biomedical Education BS/MD Program
Referred to: Reference Committee F

(William C. Sternfeld, MD, Chair)





Whereas, Students enrolled in the Sophie Davis Biomedical Education BS/MD seven-year program complete their preclinical medical education at the City College of New York before transferring to Albany Medical College, New York Medical College, New York University, SUNY-Downstate, or SUNY-Stony Brook as third-year medical students; and
Whereas, Students enrolled in the Sophie Davis Biomedical Education BS/MD program learn which medical school they will attend following the completion of their five-year program at City College during the fall of their fourth year; and
Whereas, American Medical Association Bylaws governing the Medical Student Section allow the Governing Council to entertain requests to seat a voting representative from a campus other than the main campus of the school should requests be made at least 90 days in advance of the first meeting at which the representative will be seated; and
Whereas, American Medical Association Bylaws governing the Medical Student Section define a separate campus as a separate facility in a city other than where the main campus is located, and where part of the medical school student body is assigned for some portion of their instruction over a period of time not less than an academic year; therefore be it
RESOLVED, That our American Medical Association establish a three-year pilot project extending eligibility for membership benefits, including representation and voting rights as the CUNY Sophie Davis campus in the AMA-MSS Assembly, to fourth- and fifth-year students at the CUNY-Sophie Davis combined BS/MD program, with appropriate steps taken to make this eligibility permanent at the end of the three-year period should this program be deemed successful (Directive to Take Action); and be it further
RESOLVED, That the AMA Medical Student Section encourage member chapters to recruit fourth- and fifth-year students at the CUNY-Sophie Davis combined BS/MD program who will attend these chapters' respective medical schools (Directive to Take Action); and be it further
RESOLVED, That the AMA Medical Student Section invite fourth- and fifth-year students at the CUNY-Sophie Davis combined BS/MD program to attend AMA-MSS Assembly meetings as observer members until such time as eligibility for membership is established for them. (Directive to Take Action)

Fiscal Note: $2,496 ($832 per year for three years). Assuming adoption of Bylaws to implement the resolution, estimated costs of promotion, benefits, staff and other costs of $2,260 annually, and $1,428 in membership revenue annually.
