AMSUS acknowledges the abilities of many outstanding federal healthcare individuals each year through our distinguished Awards Program.
As a member of federal healthcare, you are in a unique position to nominate a deserving individual for an AMSUS award. So many individuals do outstanding work in their fields, yet are never recognized publicly. This is your opportunity to see that recognition is given.
Nominations are open to any federal healthcare worker from the Army, Navy, Air Force, USPHS, Veterans Affairs, Homeland Security, Health and Human Services, and the Uniformed Services University.
