Professionalism and Ethics Action Committee


Your P&E Action Committee national leaders are here to be your resources for education and advocacy, helping to support you in your path to become a well-rounded physician. Feel free to contact us at any time. Below, you will find resources and our formal goals.

AMSA’s Professionalism & Ethics Action Committee aims to improve the physician-in-training experience by:

  1. Supporting professional advancement of future physicians;
  2. Promoting a supportive patient environment;
  3. Determining and addressing unmet patient needs to improve patient safety and quality of care;
  4. Stimulating intellectual and analytical discussion among students regarding biomedical ethics;
  5. Providing resources for students to develop the skills and experiences necessary to advocate for themselves and others.

We aim improve the quality of medical care by promoting patient-centered over physician-centered care.
