Support the AMA Foundation

Donate to help improve the health of our nation.

Donors to the AMA Foundation assist medical students, residents and physicians in their efforts to improve the medical community of our nation.

Your support to the AMA Foundation impacts 3 main programs:

  • Excellence in Medicine Awards: Every year, the AMA Foundation honors a select group of physicians, residents and medical students who exemplify the medical profession's highest values: commitment to service, community involvement, altruism, leadership and dedication to patient care. There are 5 types of Excellence in Medicine Awards.
  • Medical Student, Resident and Physician Awards and Scholarships: Your donations help the AMA Foundation recognize the extraordinary efforts of physicians, medical students, residents and fellows, and healthcare professionals. Find award and scholarship details.
