AAMC Mailing Lists

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

Becoming an active member of the GIP

Membership is comprised of individuals involved at their institution with space planning, strategic planning, academic planning, clinical services, planning and marketing, facilities planning, information systems planning, and resource planning. The GIP's 650 members are planning professionals who represent the full spectrum of medical teaching institutions, including medical schools, medical centers, hospitals, and other health system organizations.

How to Join

GIP members are representatives of AAMC member institutions. Therefore, to become a member, an individual must be appointed by his or her medical school dean or teaching hospital director. A letter from a dean or teaching hospital director is sufficient to establish membership. There is no cost to join. There is no limit to the number of institutional representatives appointed to the GIP. However, only one representative may be designated as the institution's Principal Contact, as described below. Letters of appointment should be sent to:
