2018 Fellow In Leadership


To recognize and support the development of outstanding mid-career physician leaders.


Leadership in medicine, medical education, and health care is more complex in the 21st century than ever before. The medical profession and the country are in need of leadership that is inspiring, insightful, engaging, and humble—leadership that both understands and represents the needs of patients, physicians, medical educators, and trainees.

Because of their unique knowledge of the practice of medicine and understanding of medicine’s core professional values, physicians are ideally suited to serve as leaders in this period of change.

Fellows spend one year honing their leadership skills and expanding their knowledge base in the areas of:

Leading from within—Creating access to a broader range of ways of being, thinking, and acting to become more effective in dealing with the challenges for which the usual solutions are inadequate. Unlike most existing programs that teach leadership by imparting someone else’s knowledge (a third-person approach), this Fellowship emphasizes creating leaders using a first-person “as-lived/lived-through” methodology. In working with Fellows to “unpack” their hidden beliefs and frames of reference, new contexts will emerge that give them more space and more degrees of freedom to lead effectively as their natural self-expression.

Servant Leadership—Based on specific core values, ideals, and ethics, effective, sustainable, and excellent leadership is based on core professional and personal values and a commitment to servant leadership.


Mid-career physicians who provide outstanding leadership within their organizations. Applicants must be active members of AΩA. Applicant’s mentors, and all AΩA members in the application packet who are AΩA members must have active status.

Nominations must be made by the senior executive of the physician’s organization.

Nominations must be submitted to the local AΩA Chapter Councilor or to a Chapter Association Chair if the applicant is affiliated with a medical school/medical center. If the applicant's organization has no affiliation with a local medical school (private/community hospital, or organization), the applicant may send their submission packet directly to the AΩA National Office (dee@alphaomegaalpha). Only one nominee will be accepted from a Chapter, private/community hospital, or organization. A list of AΩA Chapters and Associations with contact information is available online.

If an AΩA Councilor applies for this award, the dean of the medical school must appoint another AΩA member from the Chapter to manage the nomination process to avoid any potential conflict of interest. The dean and councilor must notify the AΩA National Office of the appointment.
