BACKGROUND: The American Indian Medical Education Strategies (AIMES) Alliance is a diverse, collaborative organization dedicated to ensuring that American Indians and Alaska Natives have fully staffed medical facilities. The Alliance envisions an environment where urban and rural Tribal members benefit from improved health and reduced health disparities by having access to fully staffed medical facilities filled with physicians who provide high-quality and culturally appropriate care and invest in the communities where they serve. The Alliance also envisions a medical education and training environment where allopathic and osteopathic physicians have extensive opportunities to benefit communities and further their education and training in urban and rural Indian Health Service, Tribal-administered, and other indigenous clinics and facilities.
