Welcome to AMS…from our president, Dr. Chad Rodgers.


Now more than ever, physicians need an organization that will advocate and fight for them, their medical teams, and their patients, but we can’t do it alone.

With your help, we will continue to strengthen our ability and we will continue to represent the interests of every Arkansas physician!

Arkansas Medical Society members have:

  • A voice in the state Legislature, working to pass laws and regulations that affect the practice of medicine;
  • Personal, practical support and the educational resources needed to succeed in the day-to-day running of a medical practice;
  • Physician-centered insurance protection for your practice and well as personal needs; the insight and support of over 4,200 other Arkansas physicians; and timely updates about important health care issues.
