Resident and Faculty Awards

Help AAOMS recognize the extra special people in our specialty

You admire their achievements. You count on their leadership. You emulate their professionalism. Now it's time to give that oral and maxillofacial surgery colleague, practitioner, educator, resident or researcher your nomination!

The AAOMS sponsors awards, fellowships and lectures that honor the very best talent, leadership and service in our specialty. The guidelines and eligibility for these honors have been updated and organized by the Awards Nominating Committee and are here for your easy review and consideration.

This committee only reviews nominations that have been submitted by fellows/members and does not make nominations on its own. It makes recommendations on all awards and lectures with the Board of Trustees making final decisions on all award recipients and named lectures.

Forms may be duplicated. Also, please feel free to add pages if sufficient space is not provided. You may either mail or fax your nomination. Be sure to include a curriculum vitae of your candidate as well as a succinct statement with your reasons for nominating the individual.

The annual deadline is December 31.

Submit your nomination form to:
AAOMS Awards Nominating Committee
9700 West Bryn Mawr Avenue
Rosemont, IL 60018-5701
or fax to: 847-678-4302
