The AAMC supports Joining Forces. This national initiative mobilizes society to give opportunities and support to our service members and their families.


Joining Forces

The AAMC’s member medical schools are training tomorrow’s doctors to care for military service members and their families.


Pledge and Participating Institutions

In 2015, medical schools participating in the Joining Forces initiative have committed to:

  • Enrich medical education to ensure that current and future physicians are trained in the unique clinical challenges and best practices associated with caring for military service members, veterans, and their families;
  • Disseminate the most up-to-date diagnostic and therapeutic information as it relates to traumatic brain injury (TBI) and psychological health conditions, such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD);
  • Grow the body of knowledge leading to improvements in health care and wellness for our military service members, veterans, and their families; and
  • Join with others to further strengthen the supportive community of physicians, institutions, and health care providers dedicated to improving the health of military service members, veterans, and their families.
