Seeking Nominations for BCMS Awards

The Bexar County Medical Society periodically honors chosen physicians who have given much to the medical community in the form of lifetime service to organized medicine, or have made other significant contributions to the practice of medicine. Please consider and recommend BCMS physicians whom you believe should be considered for one of these awards. Obviously, we can’t give awards to everyone, but we would like to hear from you on who you think should be considered and recognized for these awards and why.


Golden Aesculapius Award – This award is BCMS’ highest honor. Eligible physicians are BCMS Members who have provided a lifetime of distinguished service to the patients and the esteemed medical profession in Bexar County.  


Distinguished Service Award This award can be given to BCMS members (preferably) or non-members who have provided distinguished service to the physicians and/or patients of Bexar County or to the medical profession in general. In contrast to the Golden Aesculapius Award, this is not intended as an award for a lifetime of service, but an award for specific acts of service, accomplishments or contributions which should be recognized by a formal award.


Please send nominations to
Deadline is July 12, 2019.
