Emerging Physician Leader Award and Scholarship

Recognizing promising physician leadership for a sustainable future

About the award and scholarship

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.

Please support the next generation of health care sustainability leaders by making a donation to the Emerging Physician Leader and Award Scholarship Fund. Thanks to our generous donors, we have awarded six scholarships since 2019.


2021 opportunities for medical students, residents, or fellows

Award winners will receive free registration for CleanMed Connect 2021 registration and a $750 grant to support a project that aligns with the goals of the Physician Network – to support physician and medical student action to reduce the environmental impact of health care delivery and promote climate-smart health care through mitigation, resilience, and leadership.

Applications are closed for 2021. 

A committee from Health Care Without Harm and the Physician Network Advisory Committee will select this year’s recipients of the Emerging Physician Leader Award and Scholarship. Winners will be notified via email by April 1, 2021.
