Dr. David Aizuss
President of the California Medical Association
David H. Aizuss, MD, UCLA Department of Ophthalmology resident and fellow alumnus (1981-1985) and assistant clinical professor of ophthalmology, was installed as the 151st president of the California Medical Association (CMA) during the organization’s annual House of Delegates (HOD) meeting on October 13, 2018, in Sacramento, California.
Dr. Aizuss is the first ophthalmologist-only president of the CMA in more than 50 years. He has been a CMA and Los Angeles County Medical Association (LACMA) member for 37 years. He has been a member of the CMA Board of Trustees since 2010-serving as vice-chair and chair of the board before being named president-elect at the 2017 HOD. Dr. Aizuss has also represented the physicians of California as a delegate to the American Medical Association (AMA), and he is currently serving on the AMA Council on Legislation. Dr. Aizuss is a former president of LACMA and the California Academy of Eye Physicians and Surgeons. He is a partner at Ophthalmology Associates of the Valley.
“Dr. Aizuss’installation as president of the CMA is a major accomplishment and a distinction of the highest order,” says Bradley R. Straatsma, MD, JD, founding chair of the UCLA Department of Ophthalmology. “His strong interest in organized medicine was expressed during his residency, and he maintained this interest thereafter.”
The CMA represents more than 44,000 physicians in the state of California and is dedicated to serving its member physicians through a comprehensive program of legislative, legal, regulatory, economic, and social advocacy.
