The AIAMC is all about networking and collaboration that makes a real difference in our members’ lives, institutions and communities. The openness, friendliness and size of our organization fosters opportunities for its members to interact with one another in meaningful and beneficial ways:
- In-person Connections – Meet your peers, Alliance partners, distinguished speakers and other healthcare experts at annual meetings, workshops and through other AIAMC initiatives. These events and activities are invaluable opportunities to expand your contacts, renew acquaintances and participate in activities based on shared interests.
- Year-round Exchanges – Continue conversations with colleagues you've met at member events, collaborate between National Initiative meetings and share ideas, experiences or concerns throughout the year. Your member directory makes it easy to stay in touch with your AIAMC connections.
- Facilitated Networking – Facing a challenge unique to an independent academic medical center? AIAMC administration and leadership can help connect you with other Alliance members who have experience with similar issues or initiatives at their institutions. Through facilitated networking, you can gain insights from those who have “been there” or exchange ideas with like-minded members facing similar IAMC challenges.
Getting Involved – Expand your network, build valued relationships and increase
your visibility through a variety of volunteer opportunities:
- Annual Meeting Planning Committee – Be part of this group that meets 3 to 4 times via conference call during the summer months to plan the following year’s Annual Meeting.
- National Initiatives – These 18-month learning collaboratives feature four on-site learning sessions and monthly teleconferences that equip you with the tools to align your GME enterprise with the quality improvement goals of your institution's C-Suite.
- Special Projects – From time to time, we call upon Alliance members to help lead us through a special project, such as reviewing questions on our benchmarking survey or serving in a focus group. This input helps keep us on track by offering programs to our members that are timely and relevant.
- Board of Directors – Members of the AIAMC Board of Directors serve a maximum of two three-year terms and meet quarterly – twice via conference call and twice on-site at the AIAMC Annual and National Initiative Meetings.
