Learn about the JAMA Summit

JAMA Summit is an initiative of JAMA and the ӣƵapp that convenes leaders from across sectors and around the world to discuss and debate critical issues in medicine, health, and health care.

The goals of the JAMA Summit are twofold: to host thought leaders from various sectors to discuss and debate the topic of interest with the goal of identifying actionable steps with immediate positive impact, and to catalyze broader discussion prompted by themes that emerge from these convenings through publications and multimedia in JAMA and the journals of the ӣƵapp.

The inaugural JAMA Summit was held in Chicago on October 10-11, 2023, and focused on clinical trials, the foundation of evidence-based medicine, addressing the provocative questions: Is the Clinical Trials Enterprise Broken? And How Can It Be Fixed? A global group of 65 invited clinical researchers, funders, regulators, policymakers, innovators, and industry representatives dissected and debated the challenges of and potential solutions for the clinical trials enterprise. The conversation will continue in JAMA through forthcoming publications and multimedia.

The next JAMA Summit will be held in fall 2024 with a focus on artificial intelligence and the opportunities and challenges faced for the integration into clinical practice. Like the first, this Summit will begin with a hosted meeting of AI leaders and stakeholders focused on robust discussion and debate. Similarly, themes discussed at the in-person gathering will be published subsequently in JAMA with the goal of advancing the discussion.

We aim to expand the JAMA Summit series in the coming years to address a broad spectrum of challenges and engage a broader audience through a variety of meeting formats. To learn more about JAMA Summit, read the Editorial.

We welcome input on the JAMA Summits currently underway, as well as suggestions for topics that may be the focus of future JAMA Summits. We invite you to share your comments at events@jamanetwork.org.
