Faculty nominees: Applicants must hold the rank of associate or full professor in a medical, dental or health sciences school, and have had a significant leadership role.

Applicants must be nominated by the dean of their institution, their departmental chair or the chief executive offer of their academic health center. If the nomination comes from the CEO, please provide a secondary nomination from the school of primary academic appointment. We strongly suggest that each applicant discusses her application with her nominator before applying.

Administrative nominees: Applicants must hold a significant leadership role (such as senior administrator, CEO, COO, CIO, CMO, etc.) in a medical, dental, nursing or public health school, or academic hospital/health system, and have had administrative experience in personnel and budget management.

Special consideration will be given to those nominees designated as Emerging Leaders with demonstrated leadership capacity who are in a significant leadership role. Applicants must be nominated by the dean of their institution, their departmental chair, or the chief executive officer of their academic health center.
