About the Dr. Melville G. Magida Award

The concept of presenting a young practicing physician in Fairfield County with the Magida Award was created by Mr. Richard and Mrs. Hinda Rosenthal, who were inspired by their own local Stamford area physician, Dr. Melville G. Magida. The Rosenthal Family Foundation also presents an honorarium annually to the recipient of this award. The criterion that a physician must exemplify to be chosen for this accolade includes the following: exceptional clinical acumen, exemplary patient care and education of other physicians, patients, residents, the fundamentals of healing and maximizing the best possible outcomes for patients, and being a remarkable physician that is involved in laudable extracurricular activities.
