The Board of Certification/Accreditation (BOC) is calling for nominations for its second annual Certificant of the Year Award. The award recognizes one individual each year for outstanding achievements in service, research, and outreach.
“BOC established its Certificant of the Year Award in 2019 as a way to learn more about the outstanding work our certified professionals are doing, and recognize one who is truly going above and beyond to make a positive difference in the lives of their patients and community,” said Matthew Gruskin, MBA, BOCO, BOCPD, CDME, the credentialing director at BOC.
The BOC Certificant of the Year Award distinguishes a professional in good standing in any of BOC’s six certification areas (durable medical equipment specialist, mastectomy fitter, orthotic fitter, orthotist, pedorthist, or prosthetist). Nominees must demonstrate exceptional service to patients, notable achievements in research, commitment to giving back to the community, and/or outreach to developing countries or other underserved areas.
BOC will accept nominations online through January 11, 2021 at www.bocusa.org/certificant-of-the-year.
