Nicholas E. Davies Memorial Scholar Award for Scholarly Activities in the Humanities and History of Medicine

Established: 1992
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 recipient must have deep awareness of the importance of humane letters, particularly poetry and history, as one important avenue to the needs of the physician as he or she deals with human issues in health, illness, and death.

The award is not limited to those directly involved in medicine. Different aspects of humanistic qualities and the human condition, especially as they relate to health and medical care, will be considered.

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