The OCMA Board, when venturing into the Physicians of Excellence (POE) program, recognized the fact that all physicians meet a standard of excellence simply by the fact that they have completed the training and education necessary to become medical doctors. However, there are some who go above and beyond in serving their profession and patients, and as a result, the OCMA Board believed that by creating the POE program it would be able to recognize and honor those physicians.
Now in its fifteenth year, the POE program has become recognized as a fair and unbiased selection process identifying those physicians in the community who have exhibited the skills, training and commitment to their patients and the community to stand out above their peers as physicians of excellence. While the program certainly doesn't honor all those in the county who would rightfully qualify, OCMA believes the program does an excellent job of selecting the utmost deserving on a year-to-year basis.
OCMA honors the Physicians of Excellence for their services to their profession, lifelong dedication to their patients and commitment to the community they serve by hosting an honoree reception each January.
