The ‘Association des médecins omnipraticiens de Montréal’ (AMOM) is the very first organization regrouping family practitioners in Quebec. Founded in 1961, it now represents more than 1800 family physicians.
These doctors have different practices: in private offices, in network clinics (CR), in family medicine groups (FMGs), in CLSCs, in family medicine units (FMU), in public health and in emergency rooms. They also tend to hospitalized patients and work in nursing homes and in chronic care facilities.
AMOM does not collect any fees directly from its members. In fact, it is the ‘Fédération des médecins omnipraticiens du Québec’ (FMOQ) that remits to the Association a percentage of the dues it collects. Therefore, if you are not a member of AMOM, your professional union dues do not contribute towards the specific representation of your interests and those of your Montréal-based colleagues.
The Council is the FMOQ’s decision-making body. Each of the 19 affiliated associations are represented at the Council. The delegation is determined in function of the total number of its members. AMOM now has 27 delegates out of a total of 145.
We are well aware of the many problems that have been plaguing our medical system for far too long. As general practitioners, we strongly believe we are part of the solution. We work hard to ensure a better and healthier work environment for the family doctors who are devoted to the care of their patients.
