America’s medical schools and teaching hospitals educate tomorrow’s doctors and prepare them to meet society’s evolving health needs.
The AAMC leads innovation along the continuum of medical education, from medical school and residency training to continuing medical education by providing resources, programs, and learning opportunities to support the medical education community. We represent all accredited medical schools in the United States and Canada that grant the MD degree.
