Scope honored by the Association of American Medical Colleges

Some more good news about the blog: Scope received accolades in the GIA Awards for Excellence. We were given honorable mention in the social media category, with one of the judges commenting, “A great effort with impressive traffic. A consistently excellent blog, with interesting and informative mix of content.”

The Awards for Excellence, a competition of the Association of American Medical Colleges, are designed to “acknowledge the most creative and effective approaches used to promote academic medicine in the United States through alumni, communications, development, marketing, and public affairs programs, and products.”

A big thank you to the AAMC, our contributors, and – of course – our readers!
