Congressional Academic Medicine Caucus

New section

U.S. Capitol

The Congressional Academic Medicine Caucus (CAMC) is a bipartisan group of Members of Congress that seeks to promote and recognize the important role that medical schools, teaching hospitals and faculty physicians play to improve the health of people everywhere.

The caucus provides a forum for members and staff to engage in a constructive and educational dialogue about the opportunities and challenges surrounding key issues that impact the academic medicine community and patients they serve, including the health care workforce, medical research, health care delivery, health equity, education and more. 

While the CAMC is not formally affiliated with AAMC, the two organizations share similar goals.

CAMC co-chairs Reps. Kathy Castor (D-Fla.) and David McKinley (W.Va.) sent a letter to all Members of Congress urging them to join the Congressional Academic Medicine Caucus.

The AAMC issued an April 13 press statement announcing the re-launch of the caucus and thanking the co-chairs.
