Dr. Mangat Receives Schoenrock Distinguised Award |
June 01, 2009
S. Mangat, MD, FACS was recently named recipient of the 2007 Larry D.
Schoenrock Distinguished Service Award. Established in 1997, the annual award
recognizes an individual who has made a significant contribution to the
integrity of the examination and certification programs for facial plastic
surgery. The award was presented by the American Board of Facial Plastic and
Dr. Mangat's strong advocacy for the Board and its standards led to his
election as its sixth president in 2003. During his presidency, the four
components of the Maintenance of Certification in Facial Plastic Surgery (MOC
in FPRS) were finalized, and he and the rest of the ABFPRS Board of Directors
and many Senior Advisers were in the crew of "test pilots" on June,
2007 to take the first MOC in FPRS examination. After completing the rest of
the program requirements, Dr. Mangat will now be in the first class of ABFPRS
diplomats to receive their MOC in FPRS certificates.
