The Leadership Alliance proudly acknowledges the accomplishments of SR-EIP participants who continue into graduate training and doctoral programs. Participants who successfully complete their Masters, PhD, or MD-PhD programs are recognized as advanced degree scholars. As role models, mentors and valued colleagues to Alliance graduate and undergraduate students, advanced degree scholars effectively demonstrate the Alliance's core mission: to train, to mentor and to inspire.
The most critical measure of the Alliance's impact is reflected in the academic and career accomplishments of its alumni. In 2008, the Alliance celebrated the milestone of its first 100 PhDs and MD-PhDs. Just five years later, the number of Leadership Alliance Doctoral Scholars doubled to 234 who have obtained their PhD or MD-PhD. View highlights of these milestones and the celebration of Doctoral Scholars at the Alliance's 20th anniversary in 2012.
2008: First 100 Doctoral Scholars
The Leadership Alliance recognized 106 PhD and 10 MD-PhD degree recipients at its 2008 national symposium. A special celebratory publication and a video for this event tell the story of these scholars and their success.
2012: Next 100 Doctoral Scholars
In less than five years after celebrating its first 100 Doctoral Scholars, the Alliance kicked off its 20th anniversary by recognizing an additional 109 PhD and 19 MD-PhD degree recipients. View the Commemorative booklet.
