MHS Chief Human Capital Officer
As we look forward to summer, it's time to begin thinking about the "Building Stronger Female Physician Leaders in the MHS" award and your nominees for that award. As with last year, nominees should be those female physicians who have made significant contributions to the practice of medicine and/or who have served as exemplary role models for other female physicians. The award will be given at the MHS Conference in January 2011.
The deadline for award submission to Chief Human Capital Office is Oct. 30, 2010. The services will collect all nominations and vet them through their chain before they are forwarded to the award POC. The services will set their own internal suspense but awards will not be accepted after midnight on Oct. 30, 2010. Then, a panel made up of a senior female physician leader for each service, an OSD/HA representative and last years' winners will meet in November, screen packages and select the winners.
There will be two main categories of award winners: one junior (03-05) winner from each service and one overall MHS-wide senior (06) winner.
The criteria and nomination forms can be found at the MHS Office of Human Capital website: Click here. Please use strict adherence to the nomination form. Failure to follow the form may result in a lower score for your nominee.
