Taking a few days off before New Year’s? Twiddling your thumbs with no homework to get to? AAPA Awards are open now, and it’s a great time of year to gather your application or nomination materials.

Do you have a photo of yourself in your work setting?
Have a colleague snap a quick photo of you during a break between appointments or classes.

Take a look at your Curriculum Vitae (CV).
If you haven’t changed jobs in a while, it may need some updating. Make sure to detail your work experience so the awards committee can learn all about the great things you do.

Get a head start on those short-answer questions.
Complete them all in a single Word document that you can upload to the application portal when you are ready to apply.

Reach out for your letter of recommendation.
Find a colleague or mentor who can write about your service, leadership qualities, or the positive effect you’ve had on others in your career. Have them complete it in a Word document and send it to you to upload with your application.

Anything else you might want to include with your application?
Maybe an article was written about your work or you received a thank you letter from a patient. Whatever you choose to include, make sure it does not exceed four pages.

Gather your materials and apply!
Once you have everything you need, head over to the application page. It should only take you a few minutes to complete. 


All applications/nominations are due by midnight EST on February 15, 2019. Email any awards questions to Kodi Erb at [email protected].
