7. Myron D. Fottler Exceptional Service Award

This award is considered by many to be the most distinguished award given by the HCM Division. It was established to recognize a member of the Division who has provided extraordinary service to HCM and to the profession. It is not an annual award; rather it is given only when the Division identifies a suitable nominee who meets the following requirements:

The individual must have dedicated at least ten years to the Health Care Management Division and to the profession, and must have established a consistently strong presence in the Division over a long period of time.

The individual must have served as a meaningful mentor, not only to colleagues and students at his or her own university but also to others in HCMD.

If the individual has served as a Division officer, he or she must have continued active participation in the Division long after serving as a Division officer (this requirement automatically exempts anyone for consideration while a current officer).

Nominations for this award are solicited by the Division chair-elect every Spring term/semester. In the years when an award is given, the winner will be announced at the annual meeting and recognized during the Division’s business meeting and awards ceremony. [See the Archive of Award Winners]
