As leaders, we are motivated, energized, passionate and we make a difference. Medical student initiatives are improving women’s health everywhere.
ACOG remains active in supporting efforts to foster medical student interest and to recruit the best and brightest into our field. In recent years, many individuals have developed novel initiatives and programs which have enhanced ACOG’s medical student recruitment efforts at the Section, District, and National levels.

ACOG’s department of Medical Student Affairs recognizes individuals who have demonstrated exemplary initiative and dedication to medical student recruitment activities. At the beginning of each year, we seek nominations of exceptional individuals to be considered for the Medical Student Recruitment Award. Nominees should be an active ACOG Fellow or Junior Fellow* (any level) in good standing.

All nominations should be submitted to [email protected].
District XII Annual Medical Student Award
Each spring, District XII will contact the seven medical schools in Florida and ask that they select two medical students from their program who have shown outstanding achievement. These medical students will be presented with a District XII Medical Student Award certificate and a cash prize. Our hope is that these awards will stimulate interest in the field of obstetrics and gynecology and encourage young medical students continue on to earn their medical degree.
