On December 13, the AAMC updated its FAQs to clarify the Coalition for Physician Accountability away rotation guidance for the application cycle beginning in 2022.
The one away rotation opportunity per specialty per student no longer applies in 2022; and it is expected that normal pre-Covid activity will resume for learners and host institutions.
The original Coalition for Physician Accountability guidance was issued in 2020 in response to the needs of the community as the COVID-19 pandemic escalated. The guidance was updated, most recently in April 2021, as the environment for student mobility changed. The updated April recommendations will expire in 2022.
