Medical Research Initiatives
The AAMC leads and supports initiatives and projects to advance life-saving medical research that inspires members of the academic medicine community to serve the public, promote health, and improve care for all.
AAMC Collaborative for Health Equity: Act, Research, Generate Evidence (CHARGE)
AAMC CHARGE brings together investigators, clinicians, and community partners to improve upon the design, conduct, and implementation of research aiming to eliminate inequities in health and health care.
Conflicts of Interest and Transparency
The AAMC works with member institutions, other associations, and societies, journals, and the continuing education community to develop tools and resources to help manage the disclosure of conflicts of interest in funding for research.
Facilities and Administrative Costs
Facilities and Administrative (F&A) costs are an unavoidable element of conducting research on behalf of federal agencies, including the National Institutes of Health (NIH). F&A reimbursements help support the infrastructure costs that institutions incur as a result of conducting research.
Health Equity Research & Policy
Achieving a state where all people have the same opportunity to attain their full health potential—a state of health equity—requires solutions discovered through the full spectrum of research and collaborative efforts from all sectors of society.
Physician-Scientist Training and Career Development
The AAMC has convened an expert committee to develop recommendations for medical schools and teaching hospitals to nurture physician-scientists across the continuum of training and early career development.
Research on Care Community
The Research on Care Community (ROCC) focuses on integrating research into care delivery. Members include academic medicine CEOs, deans, chief medical officers, vice presidents, chairs, and other faculty.
Research Means Hope
The AAMC and its member institutions are dedicated to raising the public's awareness of the critical need for sustained federal funding for medical research through the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
Research-Based Project Medical Education
Research-Based Project Medical Education provides an interactive, hands-on education in basic, clinical, community and population, and translational research.
