The Leaders in Health Policy (LHP) is a student-run organization founded in 2016. Funded by Alpha Omega Alpha (AOA) Honor Medical Society, this distinguished program offers select first-year and second-year medical students an opportunity to grapple with the interactions between patients, medical systems, and policy.

The Leaders in Health Policy Program includes:

  • A comprehensive health policy curriculum featuring notable experts
  • Engaged community with like-minded students and faculty
  • Shadowing and mentorship from involved faculty advisors
  • Opportunities for publication, research, conference attendance

Students selected to be LHP Fellows will come away with a strong working knowledge of the healthcare system, enjoy a sense of community and cameraderie, have articles published on health policy issues, and meet with extremely accomplished clinician leader role models.

Some of our scholars with mentor, Dr. Trevor Pour, and U.S. Senator Tim Kaine at a national emergency medicine conference.

Most importantly, we bring together people passionate about helping our future patients through the lens of health policy and learn from each other.
