Let's Raise our Voices Together
We are a community of students, residents, researchers, faculty members, physicians, and others who advocate on behalf of academic medicine to improve the health of people everywhere.
Send a Letter to Congress Today
There are many ways to get involved with AAMC Action and help us advocate for key issues impacting the academic medicine community. By engaging with our action alerts, sending a letter to your members of Congress, or simply sending a tweet, you can let policymakers know how important it is to support programs and legislation that improve the lives of patients, communities, and families.
Since 2014, the AAMC Action community of students, residents, researchers, faculty members, and physicians has been on call to protect the future of patient care and to improve the health of people everywhere by advocating for federal priorities vital to the academic medicine community.
Through AAMC Action, members and supporters of the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) communicate with policymakers and other leaders to advance policy priorities that strengthen the nation’s health and well-being.
AAMC Action focuses on key policy priorities integral to the success of the academic medicine community. These policies are frequent topics of debate on Capitol Hill, and have a wide-ranging impact on the nation’s medical schools, teaching hospitals, and health care ecosystem.
The AAMC Action community collects stories year-round to serve as powerful reminders of why it’s important to advocate for Graduate Medical Education (GME), funding for medical research, Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF), and other key issues.
Join AAMC ActionTogether, we can protect the future of health care by advocating for policies that support patients, doctors, researchers, and medical educators. Add your name — we'll keep you updated on how you can help engage Congress on the issues facing our community.

"As an aspiring African American physician who is aware that people of my background are disproportionately underrepresented in my chosen field, I believe in the importance of making the MD accessible to all of those who deserve it."
- Jabari N.
After teaching middle school at a Title 1 school, I wanted to continue serving marginalized communities, but as a physician. Public Service Loan Forgiveness is a critical program for ensuring that student physicians can make decisions based on the good of society, not the necessity of finances.
