HMF Article of the Year Award

The Award

This award recognizes an article published in Healthcare Management Forum in the preceding year which has helped to advance knowledge in the practice of health leadership. The winner will receive an etched glass trophy. Should the future permit us to return to an in-person event, the recipient will also receive paid travel and accommodations to attend the College’s Honouring Health Leadership event, and a complimentary registration to the National Health Leadership Conference.

Healthcare Management Forum has been publishing for more than 30 years, and is viewed by readers as a credible source of information with lasting exposure.


To be eligible for this award, authors must have published an article in the journal in the preceding year and demonstrate the following: their work is original; the ideas contained in the article stimulate transformative thought and inspire meaningful reform; their findings apply to multiple sectors within healthcare; their article is written in a clear, concise and logical manner; and their article is well researched and documented. The number of article downloads will also be considered.


Nominations are not accepted for this award. An award selection committee comprised of Editorial Board members, peer reviewers, and active College members will select a shortlist of applicants and choose an author or group of authors who demonstrate ideas that challenge the traditional notions of health leadership and inspire transformational behaviour. The award winner will be selected based on the eligibility criteria listed above by December 31.
