Learn Serve Lead 2022: The AAMC Annual Meeting
Learn Serve Lead is the premier AAMC learning and networking event. This annual meeting is an exceptional forum where educators, students, residents, researchers, clinicians, administrators, and health system leaders can build professional connections, expand collaborations, and take part in thought-provoking discussions.
Remember: You don’t need to be an institutional leader or a physician to attend. All you need is an inquisitive mind; a passion for improving the health of all; ideas for advancing medical education; and a willingness to listen, learn, and share.

The AAMC Annual Meeting
More than 4,200 people from the academic medicine community convened in Nashville, Tennessee, for Learn Serve Lead 2022: The AAMC Annual Meeting. Learners and leaders were eager to reunite with like-minded peers and reignite the spark of collective learning. Much of this year’s hot topics centered around what lies ahead in medical education, biomedical research, health justice, mental health, climate change, diversity, equity, and inclusion, and more!

AAMC Land and Labor Statement – Tennessee
The AAMC acknowledges the extraction of brilliance, energy and life from labor forced upon millions of people of African descent for more than 400 years.
We also acknowledge the ancestral lands and hunting traditions of the Cherokee, Shawnee, Choctaw, Chickasaw, Creek, and Yuchi peoples on what is now Tennessee. We are mindful of the colonization and intentional displacement of Indigenous communities across the state of Tennessee and the disproportionate health inequities that exist in Indigenous communities in the United States today because of systemic racism. We celebrate the resilience and strength that all Indigenous people have shown in this country and worldwide to this day.
We recognize the significant contributions that Indigenous peoples and people of African descent have made and continue to make to this country, particularly to the fields of medicine and science. Their land, labor, bodies and minds—and those from other historically marginalized people and groups over the course of our nation’s history—have contributed to the wealth of this nation and, by extension, to the AAMC.
