AMA Equity Strategic Plan

Within medical education AMA is committed to dismantling structural racism and increasing diversity in the physician workforce by:

  • Supporting external stakeholders in a shared goal to increase medical school admissions among historically excluded and marginalized groups
  • Raising awareness among historically excluded and marginalized groups of pathways to medicine
  • Raising awareness among medical school administrators and faculty of the systemic barriers which hinder these groups from becoming physicians
