Bissell receives AAMC Outstanding Service Award
Linda Bissell, director of student financial services in the University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine, received the Outstanding Service Award at the spring meeting of the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) Central Region Group on Student Affairs (CGSA) in Cleveland.
The award honors Bissell's leadership, service and accomplishment in the field of medical student administration. As a member of the CGSA Steering Committee, she served two years as an at-large member, three years as regional representative to the AAMC's Committee on Student Financial Assistance, and four years as a member of the CGSA leadership team, serving as vice chair, chair-elect, chair and past-chair.
Bissell has more than 30 years of experience in medical student affairs at the UI, including seven in medical admissions prior to accepting her current position.
She is the second UI Carver College of Medicine administrator to receive the Outstanding Service Award after the CGSA initiated the honor in 2004. Jean Lantz, former UI Carver College of Medicine registrar, received the award in 2006.
