CFAS Advocacy


Whether on NIH funding, the physician shortage, or CMS’ star ratings, faculty members and academic societies can and should have a powerful voice on the national policy issues affecting academic medicine. These resources will help CFAS reps stay engaged and up to date on those issues.
