Medical schools and teaching hospitals pioneer discoveries and innovations that save lives and transform health care.

Scientists and physicians at medical schools and teaching hospitals discover new treatments and bring them from the laboratory bench to the patient bedside. More than half of all research sponsored by the National Institutes of Health is conducted at medical schools and teaching hospitals. The advances and innovations that come from this research save lives and improve the quality of life for millions of patients.

As the leading voice and advocate for America’s medical schools and teaching hospitals, the AAMC champions an environment in which medical discovery can flourish, works to prepare a diverse medical research workforce, and strengthens the integrity of medical research.
