Health Care Initiatives
The AAMC leads and supports initiatives and projects to advance a health care system that serves the public, promotes health, and improves care for all.
Alternative Payment Models
The AAMC works to support the abilities of its members to adapt and thrive under alternative models of payment, as measured by institutional success in managing cost and improving quality.
Innovations in Patient Care
Academic medicine is at the intersection of medical research, patient care, and education, positioning us to develop, teach, and utilize cutting-edge medical innovations that are improving health care for all.
Integrating Quality Initiative
The Integrating Quality (IQ) mission is to lead and support AAMC members in achieving safe, high-quality, high-value health care.
Project CORE (Coordinating Optimal Referral Experiences)
Project CORE uses EMR (Electronic Medical Records)-based tools to improve quality of care and the patient experience, resulting in improved care.
Quality Improvement and Patient Safety (QIPS)
QIPS (Quality Improvement and Patient Safety) seeks to create consensus around a set of tiered competencies for QIPS according to practice level, including developmental progression within each of three levels (student – resident/fellow – faculty/leader).
Veterans’ Health Care
The VA is a vital part of U.S. physician training, with more than 60,000 residents and medical students combined receiving clinical training at VA facilities each year.
AAMC Workforce Studies is the pre-eminent resource for physician workforce projections, data, and research, providing support and value to AAMC members and to the health workforce research community.
