About The Conference:



The eleventh annual Association of American Medical Colleges’ Integrating Quality Conference is a highly interactive, interprofessional conference focused on sharing innovative approaches and strategies for improving health care quality, patient safety, and high-value care through health professions education, care delivery, and research. This year’s theme, Getting on Track to Achieve Health Equity, will spur on academic medicine’s national dialogue and spread of pragmatic clinical, operational, and educational strategies, tactics, and tools toward improving health equity


“We believe that those in academic medicine -- health care leaders, practitioners, learners, and others -- can and should play a major role in seeking to improve health outcomes and promote health equity for disadvantaged populations.”

Jennifer Myers, MD, Chair
Brian Wong, MD, Vice Chair
AAMC Integrating Quality Initiative Steering Committee


This 2-day conference will offer engaging plenary sessions, interactive workshops, presentations, and poster sessions. There will be ample opportunities for leaders, faculty, educators, and learners to network and learn new ways to advance initiatives in their institutions, in their community, and beyond.

NEW: Pre-Conference Event for Leaders that Bridge Clinical Care Quality and Health Professions Education

AAMC will offer professional development workshops, panel discussions, and teaching sessions all targeted to the unique learning needs of bridging leaders in a half-day event on Wednesday, June 5, 2019 (1-6 pm CT). Registration will open in spring 2019.

Leadership roles that bridge the clinical, operational, and educational missions are emerging at health care organizations that provide patient care and educate future health care professionals. Because of the growing need to continuously improve the quality, safety, and value of care, practitioners must be capable of participating in and leading process improvement efforts. Additionally, learners must be incorporated into the structures and processes of improvement in a manner that promotes learning and critical thinking.

While the pioneers of this growing bridging leader community are beginning to establish successful practices and demonstrate the value of this role to their organizations, these leaders are now seeking more resources to support their success, facilitate professional development, and share knowledge with peers.
