ACMG Joins CMSS in Statement Against Travel Barriers
ACMG would like to share with you the Council of Medical Specialty Societies’ (CMSS) position statement regarding the impact on international collaboration in medicine of the recent executive order suspending some foreign entry into the United States. It states in part that “Progress against disease will falter if the global community engaging together in medical care is divided by policies that bar members of certain nationalities from entering the United States to deliver patient care, conduct research, participate in medical education and engaged in scientific discourse.”
ACMG is one of thirty two medical societies that have signed the “CMSS Position on International Collaboration in Medicine.” The statement can be found here.
