The call for health care reform is loud and clear. According to the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC), medical schools and teaching hospitals have an important role in bringing about that change.

The following is a synopsis of the AAMC’s goals:

  • Affordable and accessible health care
  • System reorganization to encourage wellness and disease prevention
  • Program sustainability aimed at helping specific patient populations until better systems can be put in place
  • Sufficient numbers of health care professionals
  • Continual support of research and technology developments
