AAMC Submits Letters to Party Platform Committees

June 24, 2016— The AAMC June 17 submitted letters to both the Democratic and Republican party platform committees for inclusion in their respective platforms during their national conventions later this summer.

The letters state, “The nation’s medical schools and teaching hospitals lay the foundation for the best medical care in the world by educating and training tomorrow’s doctors, finding tomorrow’s cures, and providing quality care to all in need,” and urge the parties to “promote policies that strengthen their core missions of medical education, patient care, and medical research.”

Additionally, the letters encourage the government to “continue its partnership with the nation’s medical schools and teaching hospitals through its investments in Medicare graduate medical education to support key residency training and the specialized care and services provided by teaching hospitals, as well as through the National Institutes of Health and other federal agencies that promote medical research.”
