GRMC Shining Star Awards


The GRMC Star of Educational Innovation and Star of Community Achievement Awards recognize the significant efforts of regional medical campuses to development programs that help students and strengthen ties with the communities they serve. All Awards are selected by the GRMC Steering Committee.

The 2017 Call for Star Award Nominations closes September 11, 2017. Please follow these instructions to submit a nomination .

The Star of Educational Innovation

The Star of Educational Innovation is awarded to a Regional Medical Campus which has achieved a sustainable and measurable educational impact within the nominated student, resident, or faculty development program. Of particular interest to the GRMC are innovative education models which (1) provide value-added experiences to complement the medical curriculum and (2) utilize a research methodology to derive evidence-based standards for documenting benefits and impact. Strongest consideration will be given to those submissions where there is consistent positive impact for their program over time and where there may be reproducibility by other campuses.

The Star of Community Achievement

The Star of Community Achievement award goes to a campus that has developed a program which has positively impacted the community it serves. The GRMC is particularly interested in innovative educational and research programs which position the Regional Medical Campus to serve as a model for transformational change in either (1) improving the health status of its community or (2) achieving its social mission through collaboration with its community.
