Most AMCs are also teaching hospitals but not all teaching hospitals are AMCs. AMCs are affiliated with a medical school and confer medical degrees. Teaching hospitals have medical students, residents and other healthcare professionals there who are finishing or continuing medical education. The teaching hospitals are usually associated with a medical school. However, teaching hospitals do not issue medical degrees.
As of January 2022, there are just over 200 hospitals in HospitalView designated as AMCs and over 1,300 designated as teaching hospitals: about 180 hospitals are both an AMC and a teaching hospital.
