The AAHC continues to urge Congress to take affirmative steps necessary for the Commission to carry out its responsibilities.
"The AAHC looks forward to the Commission being funded, moving forward, and developing the necessary recommendations to address historically fragmented and ineffective health workforce policies that undermine accessible healthcare now and threaten to continue to do so in the future," said Wartman, noting that "many of the limitations of the current, uncoordinated health workforce policies are highlighted in the AAHC's landmark report, Out of Order, Out of Time: The State of the Nation's Health Workforce."
The AAHC is a national non-profit association representing more than 100 academic health centers, with a mission to improve the nation's health care system by mobilizing and enhancing the strengths and resources of the academic health center enterprise in health professions education, patient care, and research.
