    Subcommittees - GIP

    What to Expect as a GIP Subcommittee Member:

    • Active participation in a monthly one-hour conference call.
    • Follow-up tasks between each call that could require anywhere from one to three hours of time per month. This is not routine and tends to be more intensive two to three months prior to the annual spring meeting or professional development workshop depending on the subcommittee chosen. Some months there is no work required.
    • Attendance and participation in annual in-person meeting which usually takes place during the annual Group on Business Affairs and GIP Joint Spring Meeting.
    • Opportunity to be a part of the “popular group” and the “in crowd” — behind the scenes where all the action happens!

    Data-Driven Academic Medical Centers Work Group

    The Data-Driven Academic Medical Centers (DDAMC) Work Group seeks to be a coordinating source of resources to share knowledge and enable academic medical centers to leverage new and existing data to inform the decisions across its missions, strategic initiatives, and daily operations. This crosscutting work group is led by chairpersons coming from the GIR, the GBA, and the GIP and is open to all AAMC constituents, with the goal of building a community of members who are interested in this topic and taking part in collaborative opportunities and projects surrounding data-driven activities and initiatives. Work group members are expected to participate in webinars and on monthly calls as well as to assist with projects and initiatives identified by the group and to contribute resources (e.g., articles, dashboards, screenshots).
