Every year, the AAMC convenes workforce community leaders at two annual events – the AAMC Health Workforce Research Conference (May) and Learn Serve Lead: The AAMC Annual Meeting (November) – to present data and analysis and engage conversations on the health care workforce.
This year, we will be co-hosting a 2021 AAMC Group on Diversity and Inclusion (GDI) & Health Workforce Research Joint Conference.
The 2021 AAMC Group on Diversity and Inclusion (GDI) & Health Workforce Research Joint Conference will take place Wednesday, May 5 – Friday, May 7, 2021 - entirely online. Important and timely, this event is the first collaboration between the AAMC Health Workforce Research Conference and AAMC Group on Diversity and Inclusion.
Connecting Two Communities
This virtual conference represents an exceptional opportunity for the health workforce research and diversity and inclusion communities to share their work, skills, and on-the-ground perspectives with one another. Together, we can strengthen our current, and diversify our future, health workforce. This event will connect health workforce researchers, educators, and policymakers, with Diversity and Inclusion professionals to jointly address state and federal health workforce issues.

Annual Address on the State of the Physician Workforce
AAMC’s Annual Meeting, Learn Serve Lead, was held in Phoenix, Arizona, November 8-12, 2019. On Saturday, November 9, AAMC’s Director of Workforce Studies, Michael Dill, delivered the Annual Address on the State of the Physician Workforce. He provided an overview of the latest physician workforce projections and the multiple factors that influenced workforce needs, including undergraduate and graduate medical education (UME and GME) trends, the workforce implications of emerging trends, such as work hours and retirement, and the growth in telehealth use. Mr. Dill included available information and the most recent data on the physician workforce, including trainees, practitioners, and faculty as appropriate. He also presented new data and trends in trainee and workforce diversity, current data and research on access to care, especially for vulnerable populations. The session also featured new data from AAMC's National Sample Survey of Physicians.
