Published: Nov 29, 2012

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Nov. 29, 2012) -- Carol Elam of the University of Kentucky College of Medicine was honored with the Merrel Flair Award in Medical Education by the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC). The award was presented at the AAMC annual meeting in San Francisco.

 

Elam is also the only person ever honored by both the national Group on Educational Affairs and the Group on Student Affairs for their national service and life achievement awards. She currently serves as associate dean for admissions and institutional advancement and the director of medical education research in the College of Medicine. She is also a professor of behavioral science.

 

The Merrel Flair Award given by the AAMC honors an individual who has made a major contribution over a significant time period to the process or administration or transmission of information regarding medical education in North America. The award is presented to an individual that has been active in the Group on Educational Affairs (GEA) and has been recognized by peers for a leadership role in the field of medical education as well as in the GEA. The contributions made by the awardee to the field of medical education should have a strong, positive impact on the education, administrative process, or public image of the Group on Educational Affairs as an organization.

 

Founded in 1876 and based in Washington, D.C., the Association of American Medical Colleges is a not-for-profit association representing all 141 accredited U.S. and 17 accredited Canadian medical schools and nearly 400 major teaching hospitals and health systems. Through its many programs and services, the AAMC strengthens the world's most advanced medical care by supporting the entire spectrum of education, research, and patient care activities conducted by our member institutions.
