In honor of: The late Dr. Nicholas E. Davies, former Regent and President-elect of the College.
The award is given for outstanding contributions to humanism in medicine and will be bestowed in recognition of scholarly activities in history, literature, philosophy, and ethics.
The recipient shall possess some of the characteristics for which Dr. Davies was well known and respected: warmth, compassion, idealism, and energy.

The awardee is expected to give a lecture at the ACP Annual Meeting.
