The AAMC serves a vital purpose as the nation’s voice for America’s medical schools and teaching hospitals. These institutions play a crucial role in our nation’s health care by training the next generation of doctors, discovering new medical knowledge, and providing superior clinical care. The work of the AAMC and its employees supports our member institutions and constituents. The AAMC represents all 145 accredited U.S. and 17 accredited Canadian medical schools; approximately 400 major teaching hospitals and health systems, including 51 Department of Veterans Affairs medical centers; and nearly 90 academic and scientific societies.
The AAMC’s strong sense of community and professionalism fosters an environment that supports the career and personal goals of its staff. The numbers speak for themselves—in just 10 years, our staff has more than doubled, many from referrals by current employees. Through development opportunities, employee support and activity groups, and other resources, employees can work in an environment where innovation and new ideas are encouraged.
