To elevate the importance of effective career decisions and recognize the medical school faculty and staff who support students in this process, Careers in Medicine annually recognizes a program, advisor and support staff with the Excellence in Medical Student Career Advising awards.


About the awards

Again this year, three awards will be presented for the CiM Awards for Excellence in Medical Student Career Advising: a program award, an individual advisor award, and a support staff award.

Available through the award website are descriptions of and criteria for the three award categories as well as the forum for submitting award nominations.

The CiM Advisory Committee selects the awardees during its regularly scheduled committee meeting each fall. The awards are presented during Learn Serve Lead: The AAMC Annual Meeting in November.
