Legal Affairs

The Office of Legal Affairs (OLA) offers members information about evolving legal issues surrounding the practice of medicine, including Iowa Board of Medicine activities, court decisions, and changes to laws that impact the practice of medicine. In addition to updates, the OLA can assist physicians in navigating complex legal concepts, such as Advance Directives and EMTALA. While OLA cannot provide legal advice, we can connect members with appropriate resources and assist them in finding resolutions to their issues. Contact Kate Strickler, JD, LLM, for more information.
