The Association of American Medical Colleges
The AAMC serves a vital purpose as the nation’s voice for America’s medical school and teaching hospitals. These institutions play a crucial role in our nation’s health care by training the next generation of doctors, discovering new medical knowledge, and providing superior clinical care. The work of the AAMC and its employees supports the association’s members and constituents, including all 137 accredited U.S. and 17 accredited Canadian medical schools; nearly 400 major teaching hospitals and health systems, including 48 Department of Veterans Affairs medical centers; and 90 academic and scientific societies.
We strive to strengthen the quality of medical education and training, to enhance the search for biomedical knowledge, to advance research in health sciences, and to integrate education into the provision of effective health care. The administrative leadership of medical schools and teaching hospitals are served by a variety of professional development groups housed within the AAMC. We serve as a resource for those entering the medical field, through various services which include the Medical College Application Test (MCAT), the American Medical College Application Service (AMCAS), and the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS)..
The AAMC’s strong sense of community and professionalism fosters an environment that supports the career and personal goals of its staff. The numbers speak for themselves – in just 10 years, our staff has nearly doubled, many from referrals by current employees. Through development opportunities, employee support and activity groups, and other resources, employees can work in an environment where innovation and new ideas are encouraged.
Employee Benefits The AAMC strives to provide the most equitable and cost-effective benefits for its employees in recognition of the influence benefits have on the economic and personal welfare of each individual. Our benefits include employer paid health and dental benefits for the employee, a 403b with a generous employer match, annual leave and paid sick leaves, a sick leave trust, tuition reimbursement, and commuter benefits.
