Kaiser Permanente Physician to Receive OCMA Physician of the Year Award

The Orange County Medical Association (OCMA) is proud to announce that Timothy A. Munzing, MD, will receive the organization’s “Physician of the Year” award at its general membership meeting on May 26th in Costa Mesa.  The award is presented annually to an Orange County physician who has shown extraordinary leadership, involvement, and commitment to healthcare in Orange County.

Dr. Munzing is a graduate of the UCLA School of Medicine and completed his residency in Family Medicine at the Kaiser Foundation Hospital in Los Angeles.  He has been practicing medicine with the Southern California Permanente Medical Group in Santa Ana since 1985, is Board Certified, and serves as the Kaiser Orange County Family Medicine Residency Program Director.   

In addition to three decades of clinical practice, Dr. Munzing serves in several leadership roles in accreditation with residency programs throughout the United States and was recently selected to help plan the Kaiser Permanente School of Medicine in Pasadena scheduled to open in 2019.  He also is a Medical Expert Reviewer for the Drug Enforcement Agency and the Medical Board of California. 

“Every year when the Physician Recognition Committee reviews the large number of nominations it receives for the award, it is such a difficult task to pick just one physician to receive this honor,” stated Dr. Darla Holland, OCMA President-elect.  “So many of my colleagues are doing such incredible things within medicine, health care and service to our community, and certainly Dr. Munzing is a perfect example of such commitment and service.”
