Very first organization regrouping general practitioners
The Association des médecins omnipraticiens de Montréal (AMOM), very first grouping of general practitioners in Quebec, was founded in 1961. We are now part of the 19 associations affiliated with the Fédération des médecins omnipraticiens du Québec (FMOQ).
We represent more than 1800 general practitioners in the Montreal area. Our members practice in different areas; they practice in clinical network (CR), within groups of family practitioners (GMF), in CLSCs, in family medicine units (UMF) and in public health. They work in institutions, in emergency rooms, with patients admitted in residential and long-term care centers.
Find out more about our history
A book, La petite histoire d'une grande association, presents the history of the Association, from its founding up until 2011, and the outlines of the emergence and expansion of the unionization movement of general practitioners everywhere in Quebec starting in 1954.
Dr. Marc-André Asselin, AMOM's President from 1995 to 2013, walks you through the origins of the Association for which he has devoted himself for more than thirty years.
The Council is the FMOQ’s decision-making body. Each of the 19 affiliated associations is represented by a delegation whose number of members is determined according to the total number of its members in good standing with the representation mode established by the FMOQ.
AMOM now has 27 delegates out of a total of 145.
Always mindful of the suggestions or proposals of its members, AMOM acts as the spokesperson on their behalf to best represent their interests with various institutions.
Why become a member?
Being an FMOQ member and having a practice in Montreal do not automatically make you an AMOM member. Thankfully, it is easy and free to join!
Our Association is governed by a regulation that sets out how representatives are elected and how they are accountable to members. In order to ensure AMOM's good management, your involvement is essential.
Accurate source of information
We believe that the profession of general practitioner is at the heart of the solution to the many problems that have plagued our health care system for too long. We work hard to create a better work environment for general practitioners who are dedicated to the well-being of their patients.
So much information is circulating about the current legislation, the training requirements or other key issues concerning the profession. AMOM will always relay verified and reliable information, in particular to facilitate and improve doctors' access to quality information.
