Alain Chaoui, MD

AMA Council on Medical Service

About me


My frontline experience in private practice, my service in the trenches and community involvement have made me realize that there are forces outside of our clinics that impact our training and often tie our hands. I formed a multi-disciplinary primary care group to address the needs of patients in my community, following our AMA legacy of putting patients first. An immigrant, I am thankful for the opportunities given to me, and work hard to pay this forward through effecting positive changes to help physicians in training and in practice cope with the increasingly confusing healthcare landscape. Together, physicians can move meaningful payment reform forward, and ensure our patients can access affordable care and medications.

Through you, my colleagues, I have learned and continue to learn what works and what does not work. I want to share my voice and my experience to make things better for all of us.

my story

This past year

COVID-19 has presented unprecedented challenges to our healthcare systems, to our healthcare providers and to our patients.  It has also shone a bright light on inequities in quality and access to care for vulnerable populations.  At the outset of the pandemic, to care for my patients, I created a safe drive-thru clinic which continues to exist today. 

It is crucial that we examine the social and economic barriers to healthcare so we can eliminate them and expand health care delivery in our nation. Together, we must insist on the delivery of quality affordable care within the context of the social injustices and economic challenges our patients encounter.

Mentorship Matters

what trainees have to say

Tufts Medical Student, 2021

"I have learned so much from you and watching you interact with your patients has been inspiring. You have taught me the importance of forming a strong relationship with each of your patients. You truly listen to each patient and empower them to have a voice. I will carry these lessons for the rest of my medical career."

BU Medical Student, 2019

"The way that your patients trust you fully with their lives and their families is the type of relationship I dream of having with my patients. You make people feel listened to & cared for and it was truly a pleasure to learn from you. I have no idea "what I want to be when I grow up", but I will always take with me the lesson of RESPECT, first and foremost."

Tufts PA Student, 2017

"Thank you so much for mentoring me. It was a pleasure getting to work with you. I have never met a doctor who's patients adore them as much as your patients adore you. I truly enjoyed watching you spend so much time educating and counseling your patients; you are living proof the art of medicine still exists."
