Statement on Enhancing Health through Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

In recent years, a coalition of leading health care and medical associations from across the country has come together to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) policies in health care. The Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME), American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS), American Medical Association (AMA), American Osteopathic Association (AOA), Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC), Council of Medical Specialty Societies (CMSS), National Board of Medical Examiners (NBME), National Board of Osteopathic Medical Examiners (NBOME), and the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) all represent a variety of health care professionals in the United States.

These organizations are dedicated to improving patient outcomes by providing physicians with the best tools and evidence to ensure patients receive the highest quality care possible. However, they recognize that there is still much work to be done in order to address longstanding inequalities in the health care system that have a significant impact on the health of patients and communities.

The focus on promoting DEI aims to address these inequalities by ensuring that all physicians can provide holistic care without barriers to entry or barriers based on their race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, or other factors. This will lead to better outcomes for all patients and communities served by these organizations.

Standing united in their commitment to enhancing inclusive excellence, these organizations are working together to achieve the best outcomes for their members and the patients they serve. By promoting DEI policies in health care, they hope to create a more just and equitable system that benefits everyone involved.
