Nominations for 2016 volunteerism and humanitarian awards due Feb. 29

from ACS

The American College of Surgeons, in association with Pfizer Inc., is accepting nominations for the 2016 Surgical Volunteerism Award(s) and Surgical Humanitarian Award. All nominations must be received by Feb. 29.

The ACS/Pfizer Surgical Volunteerism Award is offered in four potential categories each year. The awards for domestic, international and military outreach are intended for ACS Fellows in active surgical practice whose volunteerism activities go above and beyond the usual professional commitments, or retired Fellows who have been involved in volunteerism during their active practice and into retirement. ACS members who have been involved in significant surgical volunteer activities during their postgraduate surgical training are eligible for the resident award. The ACS/Pfizer Surgical Humanitarian Award recognizes an ACS Fellow whose career has been dedicated to ensuring the provision of surgical care to underserved populations without expectation of commensurate reimbursement. This award is intended for surgeons who have dedicated a significant portion of their surgical careers to full-time or near full-time humanitarian efforts rather than routine surgical practice.

The nomination website is now open for electronic submission and can be accessed through the Operation Giving Back section of the ACS website. For more information, contact OGB at ogb@facs.org. more
