Alliance Ambassador Program


Alliance Ambassadors serve as a friendly face and voice to help highlight the Alliance for Academic Internal Medicine (AAIM) membership, events, and activities at their institutions.

With the help of AAIM staff and other members in their department, Ambassadors will:

  • serve as a champion for AAIM within their institutions,
  • be provided with resources that will help to ensure updates are made to their institution’s membership roster and help welcome new members from their institutions,
  • be equipped with tools that will help them reach out to their colleagues, get them engaged, and keep them informed.
