New release, fully updated! The American Medical Association's Physician's Guide to Medical Staff Organization Bylaws, fifth edition, is an outstanding reference manual for drafting or amending medical staff bylaws.

In addition to providing bylaws language that supports self-governance, this resource addresses the new Joint Commission Standard MS.01.01.01, as well as other emerging issues in health care that impact the medical staff. Because medical staff bylaws are considered a contract and legally binding in most states, it is extremely important that they are current, well written and thoughtfully organized.
