Washington—Tucked away in a leafy corner of the Foggy Bottom neighborhood here, the headquarters of the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) could stand as a metaphor for the organization itself. A sturdy, traditional five-story office block faced with trendy salmon-colored bricks, the building sports a thoroughly modern interior, all shiny chrome and sparkling glass. A central atrium opens the space, brightening dozens of cubicles and offices.
As he talks about the fate of medical education, AAMC President Jordan J. Cohen, MD, projects a similar aura: grounded in tradition and embracing the future.
