Founded in 1977 with the assistance of prominent members of the Association of Professors of Gynecology and Obstetrics (APGO), the Association of Managers of Gynecology and Obstetrics, Inc., (AMGO) was formed to facilitate communication and networking among administrators and managers of academic departments of Obstetrics and Gynecology, in medical schools throughout the United States and Canada. Our purpose is to improve the productivity and success of individuals who manage the administrative and business functions of an academic department or division in Obstetrics and Gynecology. Our goal is to foster the professional development and career satisfaction of academic OB/GYN administrators by enhancing the leadership and professional skills among our members and support their role in the health delivery system.
