The Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) released a new statement in response to the updated executive order on immigration. In it AAMC President and CEO Darrell G. Kirch expressed the organization’s disappointment that the order does not “explicitly recognize the importance of international medical graduates, physicians, and medical researchers to the nation’s health security.” He urged the Trump administration to “promptly apply waiver and other discretionary authorities to all affected health professionals, including those international medical graduates matching to residency training programs on March 17 who are required to begin training and treating patients on or around July 1, 2017.”
