The HIVMA Awards honor our members for advancing the field through clinical care, provider education, research, or advocacy to help make it possible to envision ending HIV as an epidemic.
Members are nominated by their peers and awarded by the HIVMA Awards Committee and Board of Directors. Awards are presented at IDWeek.
New in 2023:
The HIVMA Award categories have been redefined to be more inclusive of member contributions to leading advances that improve HIV prevention, care, and treatment and to offer members the opportunity to submit nominations for the HIVMA Citation Award.

The nomination period is currently closed. Nominations for the 2023 awards will open in Spring 2023.
Transformative Leader Award
The Transformative Leader Award recognizes HIVMA members who have transformed the field with demonstrated significant achievement in HIV clinical care, provider education, research or advocacy. Significant achievement will be based on overall achievement and contributions that transcend a single institution and that have impacted patient care within a city, region, state or nationally.
The Innovator Award recognizes HIVMA members in early or mid-career who have made outstanding and original contributions to HIV medicine in clinical care, provider education, research or advocacy. Nominees must be junior to mid-career, achieving no higher than associate professor or its equivalent for an institution without a formal academic rank. The award will be based on innovation and originality in advancing independent research and productivity, HIV clinical care, provider education or advocacy.
The HIVMA Citation Award recognizes exemplary contributions or service to HIVMA and/or in advancing efforts to end HIV as an epidemic, such as through social justice and public service. This is a discretionary award that may not be given every year. In special circumstances, it may be awarded to recognize extraordinary acts by individuals who are not HIVMA members.
Clinical Educator Award Recipients
The Clinical Educator Award recognized HIVMA members that demonstrated significant achievement in HIV clinical care and provider education. Significant achievement based on overall achievement and referred to contributions in acquisition and dissemination of information on HIV disease that transcend a single institution.
