Annual Development Survey

Background Information on the AAMC Annual Development Survey

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
