NYCU October 9, 2018 October 30, 2018 General, Prescription Drug Abuse, Public Health, SDCMS 0 TUESDAY, OCTOBER 9, 2018 PHYSICIANS: The San Diego County Medical Society's 10th Annual "Outstanding Medical Office Manager" Contest is now accepting nominations. This is an opportunity to honor the unsung heroes and heroines of so many medical offices. SDCMS wants to recognize San Diego County's most outstanding medical office manager/practice administrator, i.e., someone who goes above and beyond his or her job description, who anticipates problems before they arise, who works efficiently with the practice's time and resources, and who strikes the right balance between exercising control and boosting morale when supervising staff. SDCMS Member physicians can nominate their office managers by explaining in writing (up to 600 words) why their office manager is the BEST in San Diego County. Nominations will be accepted through Friday, November 30th, 2018. The winner will receive a $200 gift card and recognition as San Diego County's Outstanding Medical Office Manger for 2018! Contest results will also be published in the February 2019 issue of San Diego Physician Magazine. Please email your nominations to Hanna.Basler@SDCMS.org. Remember, only submissions from physician members will be considered. I'd also like to remind you that the October 25th SDCMS Physician Networking Opportunity and Social Mixer at Rock Bottom Brewery is fast approaching. It's a great chance to spend time with existing friends and meet new colleagues. You can register when you CLICK HERE As always, let me know if you have any questions!
