The council also recommends to the AMA Board of Trustees the appointments of representatives to medical education organizations, accrediting bodies and certification boards.

The American Medical Association's Council on Medical Education, in conjunction with the American Board of Medical Specialties, sponsors the Liaison Committee for Specialty Boards.
