Nominations Open for the 2017 Johns Hopkins Medicine Clinical Awards for Physicians and Care Teams

Date: 04/26/2017

Nominations are now being accepted for the 2017 Johns Hopkins Medicine Clinical Awards for Physicians and Care Teams. Launched in 2015 by the Office of Johns Hopkins Physicians to honor the physicians and care teams who embody the best in clinical excellence, the clinical awards are open to providers who practice in Johns Hopkins Medicine facilities, Johns Hopkins-employed or not.

The program recognizes multiple aspects of excellent patient care through six awards:

  • Physician of the Year
  • Innovations in Clinical Care
  • Armstrong Award for Excellence in Quality and Safety
  • Excellence in Service and Professionalism
  • Clinical Collaboration and Teamwork
  • Best Consulting Physician

All Johns Hopkins Medicine hospitals and Johns Hopkins Community Physicians select their six winners after nomination and local committee review.

“Medicine begins and ends with the patient. That recognition underpins our commitment to deliver the highest quality patient- and family-centered health care. With these awards, we want to honor the physicians and care teams who embody our commitment to the patient,” says Paul Rothman, dean of the medical faculty and CEO of Johns Hopkins Medicine.

Winners from the previous year are ineligible to win in the same category the following year.

Winners will be announced this summer and will be recognized at the annual meeting of the Office of Johns Hopkins Physicians in November.

Nominations are accepted through Friday, May 12, and may be submitted by anyone with a JHED ID. Supporting documentation, such as data or presentations, is encouraged.

If you have a colleague or team of colleagues whose clinical work is exemplary, submit a nomination today.
