How does cmte accomplish its purpose?*The ACICBL prepares annual reports, as directed in the statute, to be submitted to the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS); the Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions of the Senate; and to the Committee on Energy and Commerce of the House of Representatives. The ACICBL will also, as needed, produce letters to the Secretary of HHS and to Congress on specific topics of interest that may be of a time sensitive basis and therefore, cannot be included in an actual report. Committee report submission is based on the calendar year.
How is membership balanced?*The ACICBL is composed of up to 14 individuals who are health professionals from schools of the types described in Public Health Service Act sections 751(b)(l)(A), 753(b), and 755(b). At least 75 percent of the members are health professionals and include a broad geographic representation as well as a balance between urban and rural members and an adequate representation of women and minorities.
How frequent & relevant are cmte mtgs?*The ACICBL meets not less than three times each calendar year, per the Committee's authorizing legislation.
Why advice can't be obtained elsewhere?*The nexus of the Committee's work is on interdisciplinary, community-based perspectives regarding traditional and non-traditional approaches to preparing a health workforce capable of utilizing the knowledge and competencies of all health professions disciplines to meet local and national health care needs. Collaboration, integrative partnerships, interprofessional service systems, and comprehensive health care that integrates primary care with geriatrics and behavioral/mental health care are the working concepts the Committee members use to analyze existing education and training policies and render both strategic and statutory recommendations and advice to the Secretary of HHS, the Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions of the Senate, and the Committee on Energy and Commerce of the House of Representatives. There is no other standing Committee or source that can provide such inputs or perspectives on interdisciplinary health workforce development.
Why close or partially close meetings?N/A. Meetings are open.

Burdick Program, Mental and Behavioral Health Education and Training, Graduate Psychology Education, Addiction Medicine Fellowships, and Integrated Substance Use Disorder Training.
