The AMA Leadership Award

MoreIssue Index | Related Articles

The American Medical Association’s (AMA) Leadership Award is given to medical students, resident physicians and fellows. Young physicians who have demonstrated strong, non-clinical leadership skills in medicine or community affairs, and have an interest in further developing these skills within organized medicine are eligible. The objective of the award program is to encourage involvement in organized medicine and continue leadership development among the country's brightest and most energetic medical students, residents, young physicians and international medical school graduates.

YOs are eligible to apply for one of two AMA Leadership Award categories:

  1. Residents & fellows enrolled in an accredited residency/fellowship program through 2008.
  2. Young physicians who are under the age of 40 or in their first eight years of practice following residency/fellowship.

If you or someone you know fits the bill, encourage them to apply for the AMA Leadership Award.

The deadline is Dec. 7, and while you do not need to be an AMA member to apply, you do need one letter of recommendation.

The Leadership Award is an exciting opportunity to advance your leadership skills within organized medicine. Apply today.
