Membership in the American Medical Association fell almost 5.3 percent last year to just below 216,000, according to a report in Modern Healthcare.

The magazine cites an AMA demographics report. AMA reported it had 228,000 members in 2009.

The AMA represents physicians with a U.S. doctor of medicine degree (M.D.) or doctor of osteopathic medicine (D.O.), physicians with a recognized international equivalent, and medical school students. The Bureau of Labor Statistics says there were 661,400 physicians and surgeons in the United States in 2008.
