2015 Annual Report

2015 Annual Report

The AAMC Annual Report highlights key initiatives and accomplishments in 2015, with links to videos, publications, and other resources.

Medical Education

Our vision is to lead innovation along the continuum of medical education to meet the health needs of the public.

Each year, more than 16,000 students graduate with an M.D. degree from AAMC-member medical schools, and more than 100,000 resident physicians continue their training at teaching hospitals and associated community sites across the country. The AAMC works to ensure that the medical education and advanced preparation of these new doctors meet the highest standards to keep pace with the changing needs of patients and the nation's health care system.

Featured Initiatives

Advisory Panel on Medical Education (APME)

Convened to deliberate contemporary issues impacting academic medicine, the Advisory Panel on Medical Education brings forward thought leader insight as the AAMC addresses medical education for the new physician.

Optimizing Graduate Medical Education

Graduate medical education in the United States is at a critical juncture, and the AAMC and its member institutions are rising to the challenge. Find out more about the comprehensive, five-year plan to optimize GME in the United States.

Teaching for Quality (Te4Q)

The Te4Q initiative seeks to facilitate the integration of quality improvement and patient safety into medical education across the continuum, ensuring that quality and safety are part of medical education from day one.

CE Directory

The site includes a centralized collection of evidence-based online activities aimed at providing physicians with AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ to help physicians reach maintenance of certification goals.

AAMC Project on the Clinical Education of Medical Students

Skillful physician performance is fundamental to the delivery of quality medical care. Thus, medical education must ensure that all students develop and continually refine basic clinical skills throughout their careers.

Admissions Initiative

The AAMC continues to introduce and offer many initiatives to broaden the medical school applicant pool, and improve the selection process to create a diverse, capable, and caring physician workforce.
