McGovern Award nominations

16/Nov/2012

Nominations for the Brian A. McGovern, MD Award for Clinical Excellence are due Dec. 1. All MGH staff, volunteers, students or patients can nominate a physician for consideration. Ideal nominees are those who spend much of their time focused on patient care; are viewed by colleagues as the “go-to” person in their area of practice; make compassion and kindness the cornerstone of their practice; make an extra effort to ensure patient needs are met; and are often the “unsung hero” whose contributions make the MGH a better place to work and receive care.

The MGPO created the award to honor the memory of McGovern, a superb clinical role model who was dedicated, compassionate and considerate of patients, staff and colleagues. Submit nominations online at http://mgpo.partners.org/mcgovern. The award will be presented at the MGPO physician recognition dinner on March 23, 2013.
