AMA awards: nominations are open
Do you have a colleague who has done truly exceptional work in the medical community? If so, you may want to see their contribution is recognised by nominating them for a prestigious AMA Public Health Award.
These honours provide well-deserved recognition for the work doctors and health groups do to improve our healthcare and public health.
This year, the AMA is calling for nominations for five awards:
- AMA Excellence in Healthcare Award
- Woman in Medicine Award
- Women’s Health Award
- Men’s Health Award
- Youth Health Award
You can access full descriptions of selection criteria here; nominations will remain open until Wednesday, 19th April.
Among last year’s recipients was Associate Professor Diana Egerton-Warburton, who is Director of Emergency Research and Innovation at Monash Medical Centre Emergency Department. She was honoured with the Woman in Medicine Award for her exceptional contribution to emergency medicine and her passion for public health.
Also honoured in 2016 were Associate Professor John Boffa and Ms Donna Ah Chee, whose contributions to improving early childhood outcomes for Aboriginal children were recognised with the AMA Excellence in Healthcare Award.
Nominations, including all required documentation, should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org.
