Outstanding Clinician Award

Each year, the ATS honors an exemplary clinician through its Outstanding Clinician Award. Thoracic Society Chapters also may nominate an individual for their chapter OCA award. Learn more about eligibility and the call for nominations. The deadline to apply is Monday, Dec. 4.
According to the 2016 OCA Awardee Jay Shames, MD, of the Louisiana Thoracic Society:
"I believe it is a privilege to practice medicine and to have the opportunity to be of service to others. The doctor patient relationship is a bond of trust that is so very special and unique. Dr. Francis Weld Peabody expressed it nicely in his classic 1925 essay on the care of the patient. His message endures today as a guideline – I quote, 'Time, sympathy, and understanding must be lavishly dispensed, but the reward is found in that personal bond which forms the greatest satisfaction of the practice of medicine. One of the essential qualities of the clinician is interest in humanity, for the secret of care of the patient is in caring for the patient.'"
