AMA Foundation seeks student leaders in medicine

The AMA Foundation is looking for medical students who have strong, non-clinical leadership skills.

Each year the AMA Foundation honors a select group of physicians and medical students who exemplify the medical profession’s highest values: commitment to service, community involvement, altruism, leadership and dedication to patient care.

Have you or has someone you know exhibited outstanding leadership in organized medicine, advocacy, community service or public health? Then apply or nominate that person for the 2012 AMA Foundation Leadership Awards.

Medical students, resident and fellow physicians, and early career physicians are eligible for the Leadership Awards, which recognize strong, nonclinical leadership skills in advocacy, community service or education. Applications are due by Nov. 16.

To qualify, applicants must demonstrate outstanding leadership in the areas of advocacy, community service, public health and/or education and be either:

  • A medical student enrolled in an accredited medical school through 2012
  • A resident physician enrolled in an accredited residency program through 2012, or a fellow physician enrolled in a fellowship program through 2012
  • An early-career physician under the age of 40 or in his or her first eight years of practice following residency/fellowship

The Leadership Awards are part of the AMA Foundation's Excellence in Medicine Awards, which are presented in association with Pfizer, Inc. Visit the Excellence in Medicine Awards Web page to learn more about the Leadership Awards and to access an application.
