Nominations are now open for up to five vacancies on the committee which develops policy and initiatives targeted towards enhancing equity and addressing discrimination in the medical profession.
The AMA is inviting nominations from its members to fill up to five vacancies on its Equity, Inclusion and Diversity Committee (EIDC) for 2023–2024.
The role of the EIDC is to develop policy and initiatives targeted towards enhancing equity and addressing inequitable and discriminatory practices that exist in the medical profession.
It also considers how the AMA can actively promote equity and diversity of representation in the AMA’s own governance structures.
Committee members offer in-depth knowledge of, and experience in, a range of equity, inclusion and diversity issues and help to shape our work on equity, inclusion and diversity for our members and the medical workforce.
The committee meets four times a year; three of those are short meetings held virtually with one full day face-to-face meeting.
Members are expected to read meetings papers before each meeting and to contribute to policy discussion as required outside of those times.
