AAMC creates database for COVID-19 guidance

The Association of American Medical Colleges created a repository of COVID-19 information as a resource for hospitals and healthcare providers amid the pandemic.

The database includes guidance on COVID-19 treatment and management from academic medical centers across the nation.

Providers can access and download the clinical resources from seven categories:

  • Infection control
  • Emergency department 
  • Inpatient 
  • Ambulatory 
  • Serious illness communication
  • Mental health 
  • Special populations, such as pediatrics

AAMC notes the information is meant to supplement clinicians' own medical judgment and their institution's unique circumstances.
