Awards & Masterships

One of the goals of the American College of Physicians is to “recognize excellence and distinguished contributions to internal medicine.” As a way of achieving this goal, the College offers 21 national awards and a number of Masterships each year.

NEW FOR 2015: ACP is pleased to offer three new awards: the ACP Award for Distinguished Contributions to Behavioral Medicine, the ACP Award for Outstanding Educator of Residents and Fellows, and the ACP Award for a Distinguished Contribution by ACP National or Chapter Staff.

As established in 2014, for Mastership nominations, the Nominator supplies four letters of support (his or her nomination letter and three additional supporting letters) as well as the nominee's curriculum vitae with complete bibliography via the online submission form. For national awards nominations, the Nominator supplies three letters of support (his or her nomination letter and two additional supporting letters) as well as the nominee's curriculum vitae with complete bibliography via the online submission form.

The Awards Committee reviews all nominees at their yearly meeting and scores each individually. The nominees with the highest scores are recommended as candidates for awards and Masterships to the Board of Regents. The Board of Regents reviews the candidates and, if found to represent the highest standards of the College, approves the candidates. Approved candidates are informed by their Governors and formally presented their awards and Masterships at the annual Internal Medicine meeting approximately six months later.
