Spirit of Mayo Clinic Award
In 2008 Emeriti Staff Members Drs. Monte L. Anderson, Keith A. Kelly, and Pasquale J. Palumbo presented the plan for the Spirit of Mayo Clinic Award (SOMCA) to Dr. Richard S. Zimmerman, the then Associate Dean of Graduate Medical Education, who was immediately supportive. The Emeriti Association unanimously endorsed the concept and the Spirit of Mayo Clinic Award Committee was formed. Administrative leaders added their enthusiastic support as well. The Emeriti Association proceeded to fund the Award with personal donations.
In October 2012 Mayo Clinic Arizona Department of Education Administration assumed responsibility of funding the award in perpetuity. The funds already donated by the Emeritus Staff support the Mayo Clinic Alumni and Staff Scholarship Fund and other educational endeavors at the Mayo Clinic School of Medicine -- Arizona Campus.
