AAMC Reaffirms Commitment to Principles of Health Equity and Diversity and Inclusion

Following recent tragic events, the Association of American Medical Colleges posted a statement on its website underscoring its commitment to you, our constituents at the nation’s medical schools and teaching hospitals. The AAMC stands with you in commitment to the fundamental principle that all people should be treated with decency, respect, and civility, and that all patients deserve equitable health care regardless of background, beliefs, race, sexual and gender identity, or geography.

Baylor College of Medicine is a member of the AAMC, and we work closely with this organization on a variety of Congressional issues to have a strong and unified voice in Washington. Earlier this month the AAMC issued a statement on DACA regarding their plans to work with Congress to pass a permanent solution. We support their efforts on behalf of the nation’s medical schools.
