UI physician, medical student, win AMA leadership awards
The American Medical Association (AMA) Foundation recently presented its 2011 Leadership Award to a University of Iowa physician and to a student in the University of Iowa Roy J. and Lucille A. Carver College of Medicine.
Christopher Buresh, M.D., an assistant professor in the UI Department of Emergency Medicine, and Harb Nidal Harb, a student in the UI Carver College of Medicine, received the honor at the AMA Annual Excellence in Medicine Awards Ceremony in Washington D.C.
The Leadership Award recognizes recipients for demonstrating outstanding nonclinical leadership skills in advocacy, community service and education. Buresh is one of only three early career physicians to be honored, and Harb is one of only 21 medical students in the nation to earn the award.
The AMA Leadership Award provides medical students, residents and early career physicians with special training to develop their skills as future leaders in organized medicine and community affairs. For more information about the AMA Foundation, visit online at http://www.amafoundation.org.
