Members are invited to nominate a physician colleague for one or more of the annual awards given by the St. Louis Metropolitan Medical Society. Nominations are now open for the 2023 special awards, and recipients will be recognized at the Society’s Annual Meeting and Installation Dinner, scheduled for Saturday, February 3, 2024.
Nominations are being accepted for three award categories:
Robert E. Schlueter Leadership Award
The Schlueter Award is given, when appropriate, to a member who it is determined has met the following criteria: demonstrated leadership in organized medicine; demonstrated scientific attitude through excellent clinical practice; advocacy for patients on social, economic, and political matters; involvement in community service on behalf of the medical profession. This is the highest honor bestowed by the Society, and it has only been presented 21 times previously.
Award of Merit
The Award of Merit is given, when appropriate, to recognize outstanding and distinguished contributions to scientific medicine in the St. Louis community. The nominee must be a physician; preference will be given to current or former SLMMS members, but the nominee need not be a member of SLMMS.
The President’s Award is given, when appropriate, for outstanding service to the medical profession or the greater community by a member of the St. Louis Metropolitan Medical Society.
To submit a nomination for any award, provide a brief narrative (two or three paragraphs) explaining why the nominee should be recognized; if possible, include the nominee’s biographical sketch or curriculum vitae (although this is not required). SLMMS members may submit more than one nomination for each award. Include contact information of the person submitting the nomination, and forward all materials to Dave Nowak, Executive Vice President, in the SLMMS office (1023 Executive Parkway, Suite 16, St. Louis, MO 63141) or email firstname.lastname@example.org
The deadline for nominations is Friday, June 30, 2023 at 5:00 p.m. All nominations will be reviewed by the SLMMS Nominating Committee in July, with a recommendation subject to final approval by the SLMMS Council in September. No materials will be returned, and the award recipients will be notified this fall.
