COPIC Humanitarian Award

Recognizing volunteer physicians and how they improve health care

About the COPIC Humanitarian Award

COPIC is a mission-driven medical professional liability company that uses insurance as a tool to better medicine and is committed to helping physicians, providers, and facilities in the communities they serve.

As part of their core values and corporate social responsibility, COPIC is pleased to expand engagement and support of communities by giving back through the COPIC Humanitarian Award.

The COPIC Humanitarian Award is presented annually to honor a physician for volunteer medical services and contributions to their community.

COPIC specifically looks to recognize individuals who unassumingly volunteer outside the spectrum of their day-to-day lives.

The recipient of the award designates a $10,000 donation from COPIC to be provided to a health care-related 501(c)(3) organization within their respective state.

To nominate a physician for the COPIC AWARD, the online application form can be completed here.
