The MERC Steering Committee sets the agenda for the MERC program and provides overall guidance to AAMC staff about the conduct and direction of the MERC program.

Committee members provide advice about:

  • The vision for and general direction of the MERC program
  • Program content
  • Faculty participants
  • Sustainability (business models)

Committee members are expected to attend scheduled meetings that occur once each year. In addition, participation in conference calls is expected. Committee members are nominated by their GEA regions. Committee members serve staggered two year terms and this includes the option for a one year renewal.
