The California Medical Association (CMA) is looking for its next winner of the 2014 Frederick K.M. Plessner Memorial Award, which honors a CMA member physician who best exemplifies the practice and ethics of a rural practitioner.

Eligible for nomination are physicians currently in active practice or recently retired, i.e., retired from active practice for a period of no longer than three years. In addition to being key source of care in a rural area, services donated by the physician to the indigent or services rendered to charitable groups are also taken into consideration.

Nominations should be accompanied by a biography, a statement of the candidate's accomplishments in the field of medicine and the community at large, and any other pertinent documentation that will support the nomination–such as endorsements from current or former patients, colleagues, leaders of civic and service organizations and/or articles in newsletters or newspapers that highlight interesting anecdotes about the individuals’ life, medical practice and community involvement.  The deadline for the nomination is July 25, 2014.
