Apply by April 30 for AMA-YPS Community Service Award

AMA Young Physicians Section (YPS) members are invited to submit nominations for the AMA-YPS community service award.  Through this award, the AMA-YPS strives not only to recognize and encourage excellence in community service, but to facilitate similar efforts by other young doctors.

Nominations are due April 30. Award recipients will be selected based on the following: positive effect on a given community or population, thoroughness of program/project planning and implementation, and completeness/comprehensiveness of information submitted.

Nominees must be AMA members.  If you're not a member, join today.
