Schwartz, Roe Reinstate Congressional Academic Medicine Caucus for 113th Congress

March 8, 2013—Representatives Allyson Schwartz (D-Pa.) and Phil Roe, M.D., (R-Tenn.) Feb. 25 sent a “Dear Colleague” to Members of Congress announcing  the reinstatement of the bipartisan Congressional Academic Medicine Caucus (CAMC) and soliciting members to join for the 113th Congress. The caucus’s focus is “to promote excellence in medical education and ensure abundant training opportunities for the next generation of physicians.”

CAMC co-chairs Schwartz and Roe said the caucus “provides a forum for members to engage in a constructive dialogue about the challenges and opportunities surrounding graduate medical education (GME) in the United States,” and “explore sound policy approaches to ensuring an adequate supply of qualified physicians that is capable of meeting the health care needs of the nation.”

AAMC President and CEO Darrell Kirch, M.D., applauded the co-chairs for reconvening the caucus. He said, “With our nation on the cusp of a critical shortage of physicians, we look forward to working with all members of this important caucus to explore sound policy approaches to ensuring an adequate supply of primary care and specialty doctors that is capable of meeting the health care needs of the nation.”
