The group responsible for creating the medical schools of the future is multiplying its membership.

The AMA Accelerating Change in Medical Education Consortium, a partnership between the AMA and medical schools, has added five new members to the fold, bringing the group’s total membership to 37.

The five schools joining the innovative collective are:

  • Stanford University School of Medicine.
  • University of California, Irvine, School of Medicine (UC Irvine).
  • University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine (Pitt).
  • Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California (USC).

“For nearly six years, the AMA has been working with some of the nation’s leading medical schools to create the medical schools of the future. Working together, we have already made significant progress toward preparing future physicians to provide care in the modern, technology-driven health care environment,” said AMA President-elect Patrice A. Harris, MD, MA. “Knowing that our work is far from complete, we are excited to welcome five additional medical schools to our community as we promote innovation to tackle the biggest challenges in health care.”
