Five more medical schools have joined the AMA Accelerating Change in Medical Education Consortium. This AMA group promotes “innovation to tackle the biggest challenges in health care.” Initially, the consortium started with 11 medical schools in 2011. In 2016, they added 21 more. Consequently, the group now boasts 37 medical schools.
The five new members are Stanford, UC Irvine, Pitt, USC and VCU. All member schools are exploring different curriculum topics. For instance, USC joined to improve digital health literacy. Stanford, on the other hand, joined to educate residents and fellows on diversity.
If you are looking for a truly ‘innovative’ medical school education, you may want to consider attending a member of this consortium.
