AMA Announces Next Phase of National Effort to Reimagine Med Education

AMA News Release (10/02/18)

The American Medical Association (AMA) has unveiled the next step of the AMA Accelerating Change in Medical Education Consortium, which seeks to transform medical education. Following an initial five-year commitment, the AMA and the consortium's 32 medical school members have made an additional three-year commitment. "Knowing that our work to transform medical education is far from finished, the AMA is excited to continue to foster this environment where individuals and institutions can learn from each other and innovate," explains AMA CEO and Executive Vice President James L. Madara, M.D. "This next phase of work will allow consortium schools to continue to explore new concepts and create new solutions for medical education—impacting the national direction of medical education and better preparing all of our future physicians for practice in the continually changing health care environment." Among the newly announced consortium projects are curricular innovations that aim to improve student well-being and efforts to enhance the quality of patient care and improve patient safety. Most of the new projects will emphasize Health Systems Science, which was identified by the consortium as the third pillar of medical education. The AMA also noted that it hopes to expand the consortium in the future.
