Association of American Medical Colleges
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.

engagement and commitment in ways that move beyond
outreach and consultation and are grounded in principles

to community-identified health and social needs
- Evaluates the processes, outputs, outcomes, and
impacts of programs and initiatives in ways that are
