Simultaneously, the American education system is facing a math and science crisis. While the U.S. is one of the world leaders in education investment, American elementary and secondary students continue to fall behind students in other developed countries. Only 39% of U.S. fourth graders and 31% of U.S. eighth graders tested at or above the proficient level in an international math test in 2007.

The Council for American Medical Innovation came together this year, its members sharing a common goal of adopting and promoting a national policy agenda aimed at preserving U.S. leadership in medical innovation. As part of its national agenda, the Council is advocating for policy improvements that will ensure an increasingly skilled and trained work force in the United States - including:

  • Improving the quality of pre-K-12 science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) teaching and learning to ensure that American school children have a strong foundation for innovation and leadership in the life sciences and medicine
  • Attracting and retaining the best and brightest minds from around the world to ensure increased advances and breakthroughs in the life sciences and medicine in America

"The Council for American Medical Innovation believes that we need to improve STEM education and welcome the world's best and brightest minds to live, work and contribute here," said Former Democratic Leader Richard Gephardt, chairman of the Council for American Medical Innovation. "We need to make science cool again for our kids, and we need to make sure the United States remains a strong magnet for talent in the global scientific community. The education and immigration policies we implement today will greatly affect our ability to innovate in the future."
