Emerging Physician Leader Award application

Recognizing promising physician leadership for a sustainable future

The Emerging Physician Leader Award 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 medical students, residents, or fellows who have demonstrated a passion for sustainable, climate-smart health care or a commitment to climate-health leadership.  

Award recipients will receive:

  • Free registration to CleanMed Kansas City from May 10-12
  • Up to three nights in the CleanMed Kansas City conference hotel
  • A travel stipend for transportation to and from the conference
  • A $1,000 grant to support an educational, advocacy, organizing, communication, research, or other project that aligns with the goals of the Health Care Without Harm Physician Network to support physician and medical student action to reduce the environmental impact of health delivery and promote climate-smart health care through mitigation, resilience, and leadership.

Applications are due Feb. 4. Winners will be notified via email by March 1. Applicants who are not selected for the Emerging Physician Leader Award may be considered for Health Care Without Harm’s Stephanie Davis Waste Reduction and Pollution Prevention Award and Scholarship. 

Please review the grant terms and guidelines and eligibility requirements before you submit your application. Previous winners of the Emerging Physician Leader Award or the Stephanie Davis Waste Reduction and Pollution Prevention Award and Scholarship are not eligible for this year’s award.
