Servant of Christ Award

In 1972, the Board of Trustees of the Christian Medical & Dental Associations established the “Man of the Year’ award. This action was taken to honor those distinguished physicians or dentists whose careers have blended well the attributes of committed Christians and competent clinicians. The title of this award was changed at a later date to the Servant of Christ.

Beyond these two talents, however, the designee selected must exemplify one additional characteristic, namely, a remarkable commitment to excellence in the fields of medical missions, clinical research, patient care or medical ethics. This award is given when, in the judgment of the Trustees, the contributions of such a clinician are called to our attention and merit recognition. Though honors and awards in this life may have only temporal significance, nonetheless, they can make the consensus of responsible peer review that wishes to recognize the remarkable careers some in our midst have achieved under the grace of God. To recognize these clinicians is to honor their diligence and to remind students that worthy role models do exist in the Christian medical and dental communities.

The Servant of Christ award, begun in 1972, honors those distinguished physicians or dentists:

  • whose careers have blended well the attributes of committed Christian and competent clinician;
  • have demonstrated a remarkable commitment to excellence in fields of medical missions, clinical research, patient care or medical ethics.
