    AAMC Research and Action Institute External Advisory Committee

    The AAMC Research and Action Institute builds upon a long-standing AAMC strength of conducting and disseminating research and analyses and informing practice and policy in U.S. health care.

    The institute has established an external advisory committee to advise on its research priorities. The expertise of these individuals further enhances the institute’s ability to provide a straightforward, nonpartisan, practical approach to policy issues.
