Policy Forum


The policy forum is strategically designed to increase participation from members on critical policy issues that impact physicians and the care of patients.


To introduce a policy issue, NDMA members are invited to submit policy issues by completing a Policy Form here and submitting it to NDMA.

If you'd like to review policy concepts - or just need some feedback prior to submitting, CONTACT NDMA EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR COURTNEY KOEBELE: 701-223-9475 or reach out by email at ckoebele@ndmed.com; or contact the NDMA Commission on Legislation Chair Dr. Fadel Nammour at fadelnammour@yahoo.com.


After policy issues have been presented and discussed, the Policy Forum adjourns. Next, the discussion summaries are brought forward to the NDMA Council where each topic will be carefully vetted. At this point, topics can be either adopted, amended and adopted, rejected, or referred for study.
