This award honors Association of American Medical Colleges member institutions with a longstanding, major institutional commitment to addressing community needs. The award recognizes programs that go beyond the traditional role of academic medicine and reach communities whose needs are not being met through the traditional health delivery system.

The award is not intended to honor any one specialized service program or individual, but rather to recognize instances where a broad-based collaboration has developed between the nominee and the community served.


AAMC member schools and teaching hospitals may apply. The award recipient must have a broad-based, continuing commitment to community service as reflected in a variety of programs and initiatives which are responsive to community and social needs and which show evidence of a true partnership with the community.
