This annual award honors exceptional fourth-year medical student ACEP/EMRA members who demonstrate humanism/professionalism, leadership to medical organizations, community service, research, and academic excellence. Nominations for the award are open to students in good standing at any US or international allopathic or osteopathic medical school. A maximum of 10 students may receive the annual award, although only one student can be nominated per school.
