​Medical Staff, Credentialing, and Peer Review Topical Community

Join the conversation! This Community includes discussions on appointments and credentialing, conducting peer review and quality assurance, providing fair hearings for medical and allied health professional staffs, peer review communications and records confidentiality, and National Practitioner Data Bank querying and reporting. MSCPR PG members are automatically enrolled in this Community.

​Physician/Attorney Affinity Group

Physician-attorneys can provide insight to current health care delivery issues, but also be a springboard for new partnerships heretofore unformed or recognized. With diversity within our own ranks, physician-attorneys can flush out new and past issues and provide new resources for AHLA, its membership, and beyond.

All publications and resources produced by the Physician/Attorney Affinity Group are available in the MSCPR PG Topical Library, and membership in the Physician/Attorney Affinity Group is free to all MSCPR PG members. To enroll, complete and return the enrollment form or call AHLA's Member Service Center at (202) 833-1100, prompt #2.
