Please nominate a physician for the Wisconsin Medical Society Foundation’s Kenneth M. Viste, Jr., MD, Young Physician Leadership Award and the Superhero of Medicine Award which will be presented at the Foundation’s Annual Event on April 14, 2023, in Madison. The nomination deadline is November 1.
The Kenneth M. Viste, Jr., MD Young Physician Award was established in 2006 in memory of Kenneth M. Viste, Jr., MD, who was an active volunteer in his community and an advocate for patients and the profession of medicine at the state and national levels. Consider nominating a young physician who has demonstrated a commitment to their patients, the community and the profession of medicine. A young physician is defined as a licensed Wisconsin physician, who is less than 40 years old or in the first eight years of practice after residency and fellowship training. The nomination form can be found here.
The Superhero of Medicine Award recognizes Wisconsin physicians who live out the mission of the Foundation to an exemplary degree, going above and beyond to improve the health of their patients and/or community. Superheroes of Medicine work passionately to help individual patients and/or fight to improve health by reducing barriers to care and improving health education, prevention or treatment. Preference is given to Wisconsin Medical Society member physicians involved in a program of the Foundation or a project supported by the Foundation through a grant or other partnership. Both the nominating physician and the nominee must be licensed Wisconsin physicians. Nominate a Superhero of Medicine physician here.
In addition to presenting the recipients with an engraved award, the Foundation will make a contribution to the charitable organization chosen by each recipient.
