Gold-Headed Cane Award Nominations

The TCMS Gold-Headed Cane award is given annually to an outstanding member who has made a significant impact on our medical community. To be eligible for the award, a nominee must be a current member of TCMS and have been a TCMS member for 15 years.

This democratic process allows any current TCMS member to nominate a candidate by submitting a nomination with the eligible physician’s name along with a statement supporting the qualifications of the candidate (100 words or less).  The supporting statement is required for each nomination.
