THE LEAPE AHEAD AWARD
The Leape Ahead Award recognizes institutions and their leaders dedicated to advancing the improvement of patient safety in healthcare by facilitating the development of medical students and residents as future leaders.
The Leape Award was named for Lucian Leape, MD, a former pediatric surgeon whose emphasis on establishing a respectful, professional training environment for med students and residents was an important step in the pursuit of patient safety and reinforcing the well-recognized concept of “first do no harm."
