AAMC Consumer Survey of Health Care Access

Twice each year, the AAMC fields a Consumer Survey of Health Care Access to assess access to health care services in the United States. Emphasizing a consumer perspective, the AAMC Consumer Survey complements our ongoing research on the physician workforce. Significantly, the AAMC Consumer Survey takes an inclusive approach to defining access, beginning with whether care is received, and examining the roles of health insurance coverage, having a usual source of care, the timeliness and location of care, and the quality of patient-provider communications on access to care.

AAMC National Sample Survey of Physicians

The Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC)’s  National Sample Survey of Physicians was conducted in 2019 for the AAMC by an external firm that recruited active physicians from their own and their partners’ proprietary panels of healthcare professionals to obtain a sample of 6,000. The physician respondents were asked about their personal characteristics, practice characteristics, work hours, retirement plans, job satisfaction and well-being, medical education debt, academic affiliations, as well as continuing medical education.
