Award Description & Background

The Georgia Society of Otolaryngology/Head and Neck Surgery has established two awards to recognize our colleagues who have made a difference in the field of Otolaryngology. These awards are given out at our annual summer meeting. It is now time to submit nominations for this years award.

Outstanding contribution to Otolaryngology/Head & Neck Surgery in Georgia.

The Gerald S. Gussack Memorial Award
Must have a minimum of 10 years of practice in Georgia.
Awarded for outstanding teaching of Otolaryngology/Head & Neck surgery. This can include teaching practicing physicians in any specialty, other otolaryngology-head & neck surgeons, medical students, residents, or allied health professionals.

If you have more than one individual to nominate, please submit separate applications.

When all nominations are received, the board of directors of the GSO/HNS will meet and vote on the winners. We want to do this early enough to allow the recipients ample time to plan their attendance at the annual meeting where they will receive their award.

PLEASE NOTE:
Both the Brown & Gussack awards may not necessarily have a yearly recipient. The board will base this on the nominations received.
Be sure to nominate your past nominees who have not yet won the award.
The recipient of the Gussack award does not have to be an otolaryngologist or even a physician (see criteria).
This system of award nominations will give every member the opportunity to recognize someone they feel is deserving of one of these awards.

If you have any questions, please feel free to call our Executive Director, Tara Morrison at (770) 613-0932 or e-mail her at tara@theassociationcompany.com.
