To receive an award or Mastership, one must be nominated by a peer or colleague and supported by two-three others. This process is confidential. Individuals should not self-nominate and, if nominated, should not be involved in the process. Only ACP Fellows may be nominated for Mastership. While it is technically a class of ACP membership, Mastership also is handled confidentially.
If a nominee is not selected during the first year of consideration, two additional supporting letters plus an updated CV are strongly encouraged, but not required, during the following two years. After being presented a third time, an unsuccessful nominee is no longer eligible, and all new materials are required for that nominee to be reconsidered.
Please note that the College receives a large number of excellent nominees for Mastership each year among a pool of highly distinguished Fellows, but only about 50 Masterships are awarded.
In keeping with the College’s Diversity Policy, the Awards Committee encourages nomination of a wide array of outstanding candidates, including women, physicians from diverse groups, and international members and colleagues.
