New Horizons in Medical Education
In September 2010 the AMA partnered with the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) to host an invitational conference, New Horizons in Medical Education: A Second Century of Achievement, to help chart a new direction for medical education over the next 10 years and beyond. The conference video provides an overview of the issues addressed, and podcasts from the conference provide more detail on each session.
