The Carrington Award is one of the most prestigious honors granted by the Federation in the field of medicine, generally regarded as a lifetime achievement award. Five nominees are selected by the Federation Medical Council every year.

Doctor April Wade of the University of Nairobi was nominated for the Carrington in 2368, but did not win. Some people thought her nomination was premature, though she was over 100 years old at the time.

In 2371, the nominees were Doctor Wade, Healer Senva of the Vulcan Medical Institute, Doctor Henri Roget of the Central Hospital of Altair, Chirurgeon Ghee P'Trell of Andoria, and Doctor Julian Bashir of Deep Space 9. Bashir was the youngest person ever to be nominated for the award. Henri Roget was the winner of the Carrington that year.

Quark was unimpressed with Bashir's nomination, calling him a quack after he failed to find any medical problem with Grand Nagus Zek. (DS9: "Prophet Motive")
