2010 House Staff Professionalism Award

The purpose of the award is to recognize and honor those Residents identified by their co-workers and ancillary staff for exemplifying the attributes of professionalism. The American Board of Internal Medicine defines professionalism as one who "aspires to altruism, accountability, excellence, duty, service, honor, integrity, and respect for others."

All current UC Davis postgraduate house staff are eligible for nomination. Nominations will be accepted between March 1 and March 22, 2010.

House staff, RN’s, medical students, ancillary staff, transporters, physical therapists, respiratory therapists, X-Ray technicians, dietary, clerical staff and telephone operators are strongly encouraged to nominate Residents who comport themselves with the highest degree of professionalism.

The recipient of the award will be highlighted in UC Davis Health magazine and will be presented with an award at the Senior Faculty Banquet on Thursday, May 20, 2010. The recipient’s photo will be displayed in the Education Building.
