What You Need to Know

On March 16, the President proposed his blueprint for the country’s fiscal year (FY) 2018 federal priorities. This "skinny" budget, if enacted, would cut billions from the nation’s federal investment in non-defense discretionary (NDD) funding and would have a resounding impact for our nation’s public health, education, and research. In particular, cuts to health professions education and training programs would cripple efforts to meet our citizen’s health care needs and jeopardize efforts to foster a diverse workforce and enhance culturally competent care for the most vulnerable patients. Cuts to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and rescinding the bipartisan investment of the 21st Century Cures Act passed by Congress last year would impact the lives of all Americans by weakening funding for current research to find treatments and cures for illnesses and diseases plaguing our nation’s patients.

While AACOM awaits a more detailed budget plan from the Administration, expected in May, we strongly oppose the proposed cuts and urge Congress to ensure that the FY18 budget invests in a robust health care workforce to support a strong health care system. These already insufficiently funded agencies and programs are critical to osteopathic medical schools and the future physicians they train.

It is timely that one week prior to the budget blueprint release, AACOM held its annual COM Day on Capitol Hill, during which the nation’s osteopathic medical school deans, educators, and students met with their federal policymakers here in Washington, DC. Our voices, speaking up to protect the future physician workforce, were strong and unified. And although many of you were not here in person, you elevated your voices through tweets, Facebook posts, and Snapchat messages during our Virtual Hill Day. While this advocacy day was our most successful to date, our work is far from done. We must continue to present a unified voice on behalf of osteopathic medical education (OME) to amplify our advocacy efforts in the halls of Congress.
