Founded in 1904, the Council on Medical Education recommends educational policies to the AMA House of Delegates. The council also recommends to the AMA Board of Trustees the appointments of representatives to medical education organizations, accrediting bodies and certification boards.
The council collaborates with other key organizations in medical education, supports the accreditation of medical education programs and gathers and disseminates medical education data and products/services. The council focuses on issues and initiatives related to 4 areas:
- Undergraduate medical education
- Graduate medical education
- Continuing medical education
- Continuing professional development
AMA members have various options to become involved in leadership roles in medicine. Review the current requests for nominations and necessary qualifications from the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education review committees, specialty boards and other medical education organizations and committees. Make sure to submit applications by the deadlines.
