Compliance Officers’ Forum (COF)

The Compliance Officers’ Forum (COF) is composed of compliance leaders from AAMC-member medical schools, teaching hospitals, and health systems. The COF provides a national forum for networking, professional development, and collaborative opportunities. It promotes compliance and ethical conduct in academic medicine in collaboration with member organizations as they advance their clinical, research and education missions.

If you are grappling with a challenge you have not yet faced in your work or have a specific request that doesn’t lend itself to a listserv question, please take advantage of a new initiative offered by the Compliance Officers' Forum called Peer-on-Call. 

The intent of the Peer-on-Call project is to encourage peer to peer relationship development by providing the opportunity to connect with members of the Peer Review Evaluation Workgroup, a team of knowledgeable senior Compliance Officers who also conduct the Peer Review Program in COF. Submit any questions that you have. One of the members will respond to your request by email or phone providing requested advice, guidance, subject matter expertise or suggesting other networking opportunities. You will be pleasantly surprised at how willing your peers are to assist you. 

Need assistance from one of your compliance colleagues? Contact peer-on-call.

The Compliance Officers' Forum listserv allows an informal information exchange among members and serves as a platform to obtain the latest news and happenings from the AAMC. Information regarding COF meetings, webinars, and calls are also sent to members via the listserv.

To join the COF listserv please fill out the membership form
