The Physician of the Year Awards were established in 1988 to recognize physicians who provide excellent patient care and foster strong
collaborative relationships with nurses. The winners are nominated by their nurse colleagues, and the following
awards are presented annually: Attending, Special Recognition, Fellow and House Officer
These awards acknowledge physicians who have taken a leadership role in developing strong interdisciplinary relationships
between Mount Sinai nurses and physicians.
"All the Physician of the Year Award Winners are partners in care and have earned the respect and appreciation of the Mount Sinai community of nurses."
