The polls are open for
your RAM Board of Trustees!
RAM: An Academy in Motion
Our members make a difference in the practice of medicine and impact state policy and law. Whether you are a Boomer, GenXer or a Millennial, we encourage you to GET INVOLVED!
RAM brings together busy practitioners bound by common interests. The Academy provides ongoing opportunities to improve oneself through education, networking channels to participate in service and legislative advocacy and also keeps members informed on local and national news of interest to the physician community.
RAM has come a long way from the days of supplying everything a physician at one time needed to practice medicine in Richmond – namely a dictation number and a parking card! The 21st Century Academy is a multilevel platform that still provides the ties that bind physicians.
CCVS, the Academy’s credentialing and provider enrollment arm, helps physicians maintain their hospital privileges.
Access Now, RAM’s specialty referral program for the uninsured, connects our local safety net with willing specialty providers who donate care to patients in need.
Honoring Choices ® Virginia, the Academy’s advance care planning community initiative, builds awareness and continues the conversation about end-of-life care issues.
RAM Services Corp. provides professional management services to membership-based medical organizations so that volunteer boards can focus on their association’s future.
RAM also serves members through numerous programs each year which provide a setting for local healthcare providers to come together to socialize, share a table and hear from a variety of speakers on cutting-edge issues. The importance of these gatherings should not be discounted. They provide a forum for our members across three competing health systems and private practices to engage as a group in a constructive and collegial manner for the advancement of the medical profession.
Physicians have valid concerns and keen insight about our world of medicine. RAM is where these concerns can be addressed and innovative ideas set into motion.
