The American Medical Association's IMG Section The American Medical Association's IMG Section Presentation Transcript

  •  With a 76 percent student and alumni placement rate for first-year residency programs, Advanced Colleges of America has a higher placement rate than the national average. Since its founding in 2010, the organization has provided online education coupled with hands-on clinical experience for international medical graduates (IMG). Additionally, Advanced Colleges of America holds membership in organizations such as the American Heart Association and the IMG section of the American Medical Association (AMA).
  •  First established in 1997, the IMG section of the American Medical Association previously had only existed as an advisory committee. Its expanded role allowed the IMG section to advise the AMA on issues specifically faced by international medical graduates. Additionally, the section has helped craft AMA policy and has communicated with a variety of state medical associations, licensing boards, and other medical groups. Dedicated to fighting discrimination against IMGs, the AMA’s section has advocated for accountability and equality for the group in the Patient Protection Act and in state legislatures.
