- Health Equity in Academic Medicine: Recommendations From an AAMC Community Roundtable in Washington, D.C.
In July 2020, the AAMC convened a meeting with representatives from academic medicine, public health, and community-based organizations in the Washington, D.C., area to discuss how to address health and health care inequities in the region. This report can inform how academic medicine can expand or modify programs, policies, and practices within other regions where multiple medical schools and teaching hospitals are located.
Designed for leaders at medical schools, teaching hospitals, and residency programs interested in deepening and integrating their institution’s health equity work.
OVERVIEW AND BENEFITS
In July 2020, the AAMC hosted a virtual meeting of eight academic medical institutions, DC Health, and six community organizations in the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area. The roundtable was designed to foster collaboration across the academic medicine community in the region to catalyze the development of community-informed solutions to address health and health care inequities through education, policy, and practice.
This report details participants’ descriptions of several promising practices, critical challenges, and points for future collaboration among the academic medicine community and local organizations addressing health inequities in the region. Synthesizing the findings across all sessions resulted in four recommendations from Washington, D.C., area medical schools, teaching hospitals, and residency programs that can be used to advance health equity locally.
