Medical Professionalism

Welcome to AMSA's Medical Professionalism Action Committee. We aim to change how future physicians interact by promoting:

  • Professionalism over commercialism
  • Teamwork over isolation
  • Patient-centered care over physician-centered care
  • Ethics awareness, integrity and professional development
  • Increased physician-in-training access to Medical Humanities

We believe that priorities of medical school training should include:

  • Patient safety and quality
  • Integrative, Complementary, and Alternative Medicine education
  • Interprofessional Competencies

Our Goals

AMSA’s strategic commitment to providing physicians-in-training with skills needed to operate as model professionals in the current shift towards a health care system based on teamwork and patient-centered care aligns with the following Charter: Medical Professionalism in the New Millenium: A Physician Charter, Annals of Internal Medicine.

AMSA Patient Safety Symposium Resources

The AMSA Patient Safety Symposium was held at the Jefferson School of Population Health in Philadelphia, PA on September 7-8, 2012 with the support of funding from The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality.

Centered around seminal National Patient Safety Foundation Unmet Needs report, the symposium aimed to bring together stakeholders in the movement to improve the quality of patient care to explore current topics in patient safety and develop strategies to incorporate these issues into medical education.

The materials below were presented by the line-up of superb patient safety faculty who shared their expertise with attendees.
