Community Clinician of the Year Award

The Community Clinician of the Year Award was adopted at the Interim House of Delegates meeting in November 1998. It was established to recognize a practitioner from each district medical society who has made significant contributions to patients and the community. Each district is encouraged to identify one deserving physician each year. It is strongly recommended that recipients be members of the Society, though it is not a prerequisite.

If you wish to recognize a Community Clinician of the Year, you should provide the name to Cathy Salas at the West Central Regional Office, 85 Post Office Park, Suite 8518, Wilbraham, MA 01095 by email or fax by Mid-October. The Hampshire District Executive Committee will vote on who will receive this Award and submit the name to the State Society to be recognized. The MMS will provide a plaque that will be presented at our Annual District Meeting.

Listed below are past Community Clinician of the Year Award winners, organized by district.
