Group on Resident Affairs Outstanding Service Award

The GRA Outstanding Service Award is designed to recognize an individual who exemplifies excellence and collegiality, and has made innovative contributions over a significant time period to colleagues in the DIO/institutional GME community. This recognition can be for lifetime achievement in the field or significant organizational contributions to the GRA.


The awardee must be or have been active in the GRA with demonstrated consistent leadership, sustained engagement, and tangible contributions to the GRA community. Current involvement is not essential, though will be considered as a positive factor. Contributions should have had substantive positive impact on the education, administrative processes, or public image of the GRA and its membership.

The awardee should be affiliated at the time of the award with an AAMC member institutional or stakeholder organization or retired from such.

GRA seated steering committee members are not eligible to be nominated until at least three years after the conclusion of their term.


The GRA Steering Committee Officers will present appropriate candidates to the Steering Committee for endorsement.  The award will be conferred during the GRA Business meeting held at Learn Serve Lead: AAMC Annual Meeting.
