New section

Whether on NIH funding or expanding the health care workforce, faculty members and academic societies can and should have a voice on the national policy issues affecting academic medicine. These resources will help CFAS reps stay engaged and up to date on those issues.

Advocacy Resources:

Each year, CFAS distributes a number of AAMC sign-on opportunities to member societies on the following subjects:

  • NIH funding recommendations
  • VA research funding recommendations
  • The Health Professions and Nursing Education Coalition's (HPNEC) funding recommendations for the Health Resources and Services Administration's (HRSA) workforce development programs
  • GME expansion legislation such as the Opioid Workforce Act
  • Funding recommendations for the VA's Medical and Prosthetic Research program
  • Immigration legislation or other policy-making that affects the health care workforce
  • Other legislation that provides robust, sustained funding for medical research

Individuals should also reach out to their institution's government relations contacts for guidance.
