    The GIA Awards for Excellence Competition is an annual, peer-reviewed competition that recognizes outstanding work by members of the Group on Institutional Advancement (GIA) and their staff. The awards honor the most creative and effective approaches used to promote academic medicine through alumni relations, communications, development, marketing, and public affairs/community relations programs and projects.

    We want to recognize the outstanding work you’ve produced to help advance your institution to greatness. You’ve been responding to challenging times and, at the same time, creating innovative campaigns, writing articles, organizing alumni and community events, revamping your digital presence, and, most important, demonstrating the value of your institution to your community. Now is the time to show off your work and be recognized!

    The 2023 AAMC GIA Awards for Excellence competition is open from August 1-October 11, 2022.
