AAMC Seminars for Women and Minorities

The Office of Faculty Affairs funds the registration fees for one faculty member to participate in professional development seminars for women and minorities organized by the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC). If there are no current calls for applications and you have questions, please contact Faculty.Affairs@umassmed.edu.

Application Components: 

Applications are reviewed by an internal committee who will select the applicant(s) who will most benefit from attending the seminar. Selected faculty are responsible for securing additional funding to cover travel and other expenses. Selected applicants are informed in sufficient time so that they can complete their application to AAMC.

Faculty who do not seek OFA financial support may apply directly to AAMC for the seminars. If you do apply, please inform OFA at kathleen.rancourt@umassmed.edu, so that we can keep a list of all faculty planning to attend the seminars.
