If you’d like to hear your question answered in a future episode, follow @AAMCToday on X, formerly known as Twitter, and on Instagram or join the AAMC community at communities.aamc.org, and keep a look out for the ask!
Amy Addams is the director of student affairs alignment and holistic review at the AAMC. In this role, she helps medical schools use holistic review to examine and revise admission processes to create a more equitable path to medicine. She also leads the AAMC’s work in improving equity and access for medical students and patients with disabilities.
On this episode of “Ask an Expert,” Addams answers questions about the current role holistic review plays in the admissions process, the future of holistic review following the recent Supreme Court decision to ban race-conscious admissions, and the AAMC’s work in increasing diversity in medical school.
