The American Medical Association nominates representatives to key medical education organizations, Residency Review Committees of the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME), and member Boards of the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS).

About the Council

Founded in 1904 to improve medical education in the US, the Council on Medical Education formulates policy on medical education by recommending educational policies to the AMA House of Delegates, through the AMA Board of Trustees. The Council is also responsible for recommending the appointments of representatives to medical education organizations, accrediting bodies, and certification boards.

Council reports since 2008

Our work

The Council focuses on policy development and implementation activities through liaison and collaboration with other key organizations in medical education, support for the accreditation of undergraduate and graduate medical education programs, and collection and dissemination of critical medical education data and products/services. These activities are supported by the Council’s strategic focus on four major areas:

  • Medical education financing, including student debt
  • Measurement of physician competence and performance
