Students are the leaders of the future. Top leaders motivate and move people and organizations from where they are to where they need to be.
The AOA Presidential Memorial Leadership Award honors and recognizes an osteopathic medical student who is committed to the principles of osteopathic medicine and who has made great strides toward becoming one of the top student leaders. This individual has been instrumental in motivating people and takes conscious, well calculated steps to develop themselves and their followers.
The recipient of this $5,000 award must be a current member of the Student Osteopathic Medical Association who has successfully completed his/her first-year of studies in an osteopathic medical school prior to the fall of 2015.
