Hundreds of your peers from around the world attended each of the last three webinars hosted by the American Medical Association’s Accelerating Change in Medical Education Consortium. Don’t miss the next opportunity to learn and interact with your peers in our next webinar, “Health Systems Science: The Third Pillar of Medical Education.” During this webinar, you’ll learn how health systems science enhances the basic and clinical sciences—the other two pillars of medical education—and can lead to improved patient care.

  • Learn about the integration of medical education and health care systems through health systems science curricula
