On-line registrations for the 2021 AIAMC Annual Meeting are now being accepted.  Due to the slower than anticipate distribution of COVID-19 vaccines and out of an abundance of caution and care for our AIAMC members, vendor partners and conference faculty, the AIAMC Board of Directors has decided to shift the AIAMC March 2021 meeting from a hybrid model to an all-virtual one.  Early bird registrants who enroll before January 15, 2021 will receive a 10% discount.  Please note that all registrations must be paid at the time of registration by credit card.

Join key leaders from independent academic medical centers around the country at Connecting Education to Exceptional Patient Care 2021 Annual MeetingOur conference theme of Uniting for Transformational Change will be delivered by outstanding, nationally-recognized speakers in an atmosphere of networking and dialogue you won't find at any other national meeting.  Key topics include diversity and equity, social determinants of health and well-being and courage in times of stress.

Carl Allamby, MD, PGY 2 Emergency Medicine Resident, at Cleveland Clinic Akron General will provide the keynote address.  Dr. Allamby grew up in East Cleveland and started fixing cars professionally in high school, eventually opening two shops.  He was pursuing a business degree in night school when he took a biology course and had an epiphany: He wanted to be a doctor.  He sold the business and went to medical school, becoming a doctor at age 47.  His inspirational story has been featured on the CBS Evening News, an AARP documentary, and the Kelly Clarkson Show.
