The AAMC recognizes the clinical mission is critical and has taken steps to bring together leaders of practice plans and other institutional leaders to support their efforts, and to find way to transform their institutions to meet the challenges of providing health care as delivery and payment systems are changing.
Every spring, the GFP meets with the Chief Medical Officers Group (CMOG). Meeting with other practice plan executives, as well as Chief Medical Officers will provide you with unique opportunities for networking and to explore issues of mutual concern. At our 2021 meeting, we had interactive and thought-provoking discussions on important topics, such as the new administration and Medicaid, different approaches to the evolving role of the chair, and improving health care access for all.
CMOG and GFP will meet together next year and details about the 2022 meeting will be announced soon. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
On both the legislative and regulatory side, AAMC staff work to ensure that the voice of academic medicine is heard in Washington. Staff also keeps GFP members updated about major legislative and regulatory initiatives through its weekly newsletter, Washington Highlights. Additionally, webinars are regularly help to inform and engage members on the latest regulatory items that affect faculty practice plans.

- Compensation methodologies for basic science and research faculty
- Whether institutions use non-compete clauses for physicians
