AAMC Statement on Dobbs v. Jackson
June 26, 2022
Dear VTCSOM Students, Faculty and Staff,
The Supreme Court’s decision on Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization prompted a statement by the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) noting its impact on women’s access to evidence-based care, the worsening of health disparities in historically and economically marginalized and disadvantaged populations, and the interference with the physician’s responsibility to provide the best medical care for every patient.
As dean of one of the 155 accredited medical schools in the United States with membership in the AAMC, I appreciate the organization’s attention to these important implications and the AAMC’s commitment to work with member medical schools and teaching hospitals to minimize the impact on medical education and health care.
