We invite you to submit self-nominations for service on the AAMC's Medical Education Planning Committee for November 2022 – November 2025.
The AAMC’s Medical Education Planning Committee seeks self-nominations of medical educators from across the continuum of medical education and with a variety of backgrounds. The Medical Education Planning Committee members are responsible for reviewing the abstract and session submissions and peer review comments submitted through the call for submissions for AAMC’s Annual Meeting: Learn Serve Lead (LSL). Most of the work of the committee happens during the submission reading period in January and February (done independently) and at the 2-day in-person meeting in Washington, DC in late February/early March (done as a group). Newly elected members begin their term at the conclusion of LSL 2022.
The AAMC's Medical Education Planning Committee is comprised of leaders in the field of medical education. As such, we seek nominees who:
- Have demonstrated scholarly activity
- Have attended and/or presented at AAMC Meetings
- Have experience reviewing/editing manuscripts for medical education journals
- Are willing to serve for a three-year term
- Are available to participate in regularly scheduled conference calls once a month
- Are available to participate in a two-day in-person meeting in Washington, DC in late February/early March 2023
Given the current areas of expertise represented in the committee, we are looking to fill four vacancies with individuals with expertise in the following areas:
- Medical education research methods (qualitative)
- Medical education research methods (quantitative)
- Continuing professional development (CPD) / continuing medical education (CME)
The AAMC is committed to equity, diversity, and inclusion. The AAMC and all our constituent committees are committed to success by seeking a diversity of people and perspectives. We are committed to ensuring that the AAMC is doing everything we can to create an equitable, fair, and respectful environment at the AAMC where each of us feels safe and valued. -Dr. David Skorton
To support the AAMC’s diversity, equity, and inclusion mandate, the committee requests nominees voluntarily self-identify if they are underrepresented in medicine (URM). AAMC defines underrepresented in medicine as coming from those racial and/or ethnic populations that are underrepresented in the medical profession relative to their numbers in the general population.
