American College Of Surgeons - Inspiring Quality: Highest Standards, Better Outcomes

AAMC Council of Faculty and Academic Societies

The purpose of the Association of American Medical Colleges Council of Faculty and Academic Societies (AAMC CFAS) is to serve as a forum reflecting the diversity of medical school faculties represented by the AAMC.  Its members are drawn directly from the faculty rosters of each individual school as well as the academic professional societies that are populated with faculty from many schools.  As such, the CFAS will identify critical issues facing faculty members of medical schools; provide a voice for faculty about those issues to the AAMC as they relate to the creation or implementation of the AAMC’s programs, services, and policies; and serve as a communications conduit with faculty regarding matters related to the core missions of academic medicine.
