Full Contest Rules

The Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) is conducting a contest for a one-year subscription to Academic Medicine, the AAMC’s peer-reviewed monthly journal.

Eligibility: To be eligible to participate, you must be a medical trainee (a medical student, resident, or fellow), be of the age of majority in the country in which you reside, and submit one Qualifying Entry (see below). Employees of the AAMC or Wolters-Kluwer, and their families, agents, and anyone associated with offering this contest, are not eligible to participate.

Contest Period: December 1, 2017, at 8:00 AM EST to December 29, 2017, at 11:59 PM EST

Qualifying Entry:

  • To enter the contest, follow @AcadMedJournal and tweet an answer to the question “What do you like best about the journal?” or “Why do you want to win a subscription?” The answer must include Academic Medicine’s Twitter handle (@AcadMedJournal) and #WinterWishList.
  • If you do not want to tweet or follow the journal, you may enter the contest by emailing AcadMed_Online@aamc.org with the subject line #WinterWishList and in the body, include your short answer (no more than 140 characters) to “What do you like best about the journal?” or “Why do you want to win a subscription?”.
  • You may not create multiple Twitter or email accounts for the purpose of making multiple entries. You must be a human, not a bot. You may make only one entry, across both Twitter and email, during the Contest Period (see above). You must be eligible to enter the contest.

Prize: The winner will receive a one-year individual subscription to Academic Medicine (valued at USD 245 for a winner located in the U.S. or USD 463 for a winner located outside of the U.S.). No substitution, cash equivalent, or transfer of prize is permitted.

Winner Selection and Notification: The winning entry will be selected at random, on or about January 8, 2018, from all Qualifying Entries. The odds of winning will depend on the number of Qualifying Entries received. The winner will be contacted via Twitter direct message and/or email, and winner must reply to confirm medical trainee status and to provide a mailing address for the prize. Any potential winner that cannot be contacted or does not respond within three (3) days of attempted first notification will forfeit the prize. The winner will be announced via Twitter once the winner is confirmed.

Terms and Conditions: Prizes are awarded without warranty, express or implied, without limitation, except where this would be contrary to federal, state, provincial, or local laws or regulations. All federal, state, provincial, and local laws and regulations apply.
