“For many people, it makes them feel great to know they are helping the world or affecting change, even if it may seem minuscule in scale to others. Working at the AAMC definitely gives me fulfillment because we are helping to expand the medical/health care workforce.”
“The AAMC is a great place to work. I feel challenged, heard, respected, and find that many of my colleagues feel the same way.”
“I have never felt that I needed to ‘fit the mold’ to be successful at the AAMC. While many of my colleagues have very different ways of thinking and chose substantially different career paths, the AAMC's commitment to inclusivity has allowed all voices to be at the table. Not only do I get to be at the table, I feel welcome there.”
