AAMC Mailing Lists

stamp on an envelope

AAMC mailing lists are available for sharing valuable information and resources with our member institutions and constituents.


GIP Listserve

The Group on Institutional Planning (GIP) listserve is a general electronic forum for discussion of any matter related to academic medical center planning e.g., strategic planning, academic planning, clinical services planning, and marketing, facilities planning, information systems and telecommunications planning, and resource planning, among others. The GIP listserve is open to representatives of AAMC member institutions.

Sample topics addressed on the GIP listserve include:

  • models for measuring physician performance
  • institutional policies on allocation of research space
  • development of guidelines for measuring research lab productivity
  • models for projecting revenues for the medical school or for individual faculty members
  • consultants used for laboratory facilities, restructuring efforts, etc.
  • announcement of conferences, positions available, and information resources relevant to medical center planners

The listserve can also be used as a resource to identify other GIP members who are interested in discussing a specific topic or subject. Ad hoc groups can be identified and formed through the use of the listserve. Ad hoc groups who have similar interests can then convene outside of the listserve forum.

To join the list

  1. Send a blank email message to
  2. Once a list owner has verified that you are a representative of an AAMC member institution, your subscription will be activated and you will receive an email confirmation.
