Awards for single-discipline entries (medicine only) are $3,000 for first place, $2,500 for second place, and $1,500 for third place. Awards for interprofessional entries (medicine and one or more health professions) are $7,500 for first place, $5,000 for second place, and $3,000 for third place. Visit www.aamc.org/about/awards/ for information about eligibility, entry categories, criteria, entry checklist, and selection process.
