GME Leadership Impact Award

While leading continuous improvement and innovation within their residency or fellowship programs, Program Directors and Associate Program Directors often extend their impact through contributions beyond Iowa. This award provides the opportunity for us to recognize the important impact of those who have made significant contributions that advance graduate medical education.
