Since 1999, the AAMC has been building a national benchmarking database of fundraising programs at medical schools and teaching hospitals. This database is a product of the data submitted each year by AAMC member institutions.
The survey and its resulting database are designed to:
- Assist medical school deans and teaching hospital CEOs in assessing the effectiveness of their institutional fundraising
- Enable members to benchmark their development programs against those of other institutions
- Compile and report national trends in fundraising at medical schools and teaching hospitals
