The Leaders in Health Policy (LHP) is a student-run organization. When it was founded in 2016, it received funding from the 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 policy, medical systems, physicians, and patients.

The Leaders in Health Policy Program includes:

  • A comprehensive health policy curriculum featuring notable speakers who are experts in the field
  • Engaged community with like-minded students and faculty
  • Close mentorship with involved faculty advisors
  • Opportunities for research, publications, conference attendance, and writing opinion pieces


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.
