AAMC mailing lists are available for sharing valuable information and resources with our member institutions and constituents.

UGME Section Projects

The UGME steering committee undertakes projects to provide resources to our members. The following projects have been conducted over the past several years. We review the information annually to provide updated resources when available:

Business Model Canvas for Medical Educators

The UGME steering committee recognizes that medical education programs are faced with the ubiquitous challenge of repeated calls for innovation and that, frequently, these calls do not adequately address the associated resource demands. As medical educators, we have become highly creative in identifying strategies to do more with less, but as we know, this is not a sustainable model of stewardship. In 2016 and 2017, the UGME section collaborated with the Group on Business Affairs (GBA) to explore evolving models to support and sustain UGME programming. A result of this work is the Business Model Canvas for Medical Educators. The original Business Model Canvas was proposed by Alexander Osterwalder in 2008 and has been modified over time to fit other needs.

The following resources include the Business Model Canvas for Medical Educators template and two examples submitted by institutions who have successfully used the template to secure funding from within their own institution.

Clinical Skills Education Resources

The UGME steering committee recognized the importance of ongoing national attention to clinical skills education. To that end, we have linked three very important documents prepared by various commissioned AAMC task forces. The first report, prepared in 2004, defined the state of clinical skills education in the United States. This was followed in 2005 with a report that proposed the design and content of a model undergraduate clinical skills curriculum and another in 2008 that identified the clinical skills curriculum and performance outcomes for pre-clerkship students. We also have listed a few key peer-reviewed references.
