Congressional Academic Medicine Caucus

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.

Rep. Greg Murphy (R.N.C.) released a press statement on December 12, 2022 announcing that he will be the Republican co-chair of the CAMC for the 118th Congress.
