Physician Workforce Development
New York State's medical schools are committed to training a diverse and culturally competent workforce that will meet the health care needs of the state. In addition to increasing class sizes and expanding medical education programming, the schools are developing and strengthening programs that blend medicine, research, global health, primary care, diversity, and public health within their curricula. Working in collaboration with local government and allied health organizations, the medical schools are dedicated to supporting their surrounding communities by providing patient care and promoting healthy living.
Through collaborative efforts, AMSNY's members are committed to:
Increasing the number of underrepresented minority, or educationally/economically underserved, individuals who are academically prepared for, and admitted to, New York's medical schools and whom eventually practice in the State;
Ensuring that the population of New York has access to high quality, culturally-sensitive, cost-effective health care;
Increasing the number of primary care physicians, while ensuring an adequate distribution across the State;
Offering New York's citizens the opportunity to benefit from newly developed medicines, procedures, and technologies through public outreach programs, and improved coordination of information and resources;
Advancing inter-professional and inter-disciplinary education;
- Promoting team-based care and training.
