National Awards

Leaders, educators, changemakers of all stripes — we want to recognize and celebrate the ones making a difference — the ones making our world a better, more equitable and just place through medicine. 

AMSA community, nominate freely — we want to hear from you. Submit candidates you feel have worked to change the face of medicine for the better. Award winners in the following six categories will be acknowledged and celebrated during our FP4Change Awards Ceremony (catch a glimpse via this slideshow).
