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 a medical student, resident, or fellow who has demonstrated a passion for sustainable, climate-smart health care or a commitment to climate-health leadership.
Winner(s) will receive free registration to CleanMed Connect 2021, held virtually May 18-20. In addition, winners will receive a $750 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.
The Physician Network Advisory Committee, which will select the award recipient(s), seeks medical students, residents, and fellows who show promising physician leadership for a sustainable future. Applications will be evaluated based primarily on the applicant’s project proposal and how it will help advance the climate-smart health care or physician climate-health movements, along with the applicant’s leadership potential.
Applications are due March 15, 2021. Winners will be notified via email by April 1, 2021. 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.
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.
