My extensive background both clinically and within ACLM have taught me the importance of being a leader by example and well as being part of a team.  The fellow membership within ACLM to me is very important, especially since this is the first year that it is available to the licensed clinical team.  ACLM originated as a physician guided organization until 2012 when other professionals were accepted and now has grown into a multi-professional organization that embraces all members.  This new level of membership for the licensed clinical team is extremely important and shows how ACLM as an organization embraces all of its members.  To become a licensed clinical team fellow would be such an honor and be one of the highest honors that I have ever received, especially since it is coming from ACLM.
