The Emerging Physician Leader Award and Scholarship was established in 2018 by the Health Care Without Harm Physician Network, recognizing the importance of mentoring and supporting the next generation of physician sustainability champions.
The award recognizes a medical student, resident, or fellow who has demonstrated a passion for sustainable health care or a commitment to climate and health leadership. Award winners will receive a full CleanMed 2020 registration, accommodations for three nights at the conference hotel, and a travel stipend for transportation to and from the conference.
The Physician Network Advisory Committee, which will select the award recipient(s), seeks those who show promising physician leadership for a sustainable future. Applications will be evaluated based on the applicant’s:
- Sustainability interests and experience
- Plans to incorporate sustainability leadership into career
- Alignment of interests with the goals of the Physician Network and how CleanMed will support the applicant’s work
- Leadership potential
Winner(s) will receive a full CleanMed registration, accommodations for three nights at the conference hotel, and a travel stipend for transportation to and from the conference. The winner will be recognized at CleanMed, be featured in a Physicians in Action profile, and be considered for membership on the Physician Network Advisory Committee.
Applications are due Feb. 3. Winners will be notified by Feb. 17. Those not selected for the Emerging Physician Leader Award may be considered for Health Care Without Harm’s Stephanie Davis Award.
Application deadline has now passed.
