Congratulations to the following Pennsylvania Chapter members who will be receiving national ACP awards at the 2013 Internal Medicine Meeting in San Francisco in April:
Bennett Lorber, MD, MACP has been awarded the Jane F. Desforges Distinguished Teacher Award. The award is bestowed upon a Fellow or Master of the College who has demonstrated the ennobling qualities of a great teacher as judged by the acclaim and accomplishments of former students who have been inspired and have achieved positions of leadership in the field of medical education, primarily as teachers.
The Outstanding Volunteer Clinical Teacher Award has been awarded to William H. Lipshutz, MD, FACP. The award is bestowed upon a Member, Fellow, or Master of the College who has consistently volunteered his or her services to teach medical students and residents. This individual should have demonstrated outstanding teaching prowess, displayed exemplary characteristics of care and concern for individual patients at the bedside, and served as a role model and mentor.
Richard J. Baron, MD, MACP is the awardee of the Joseph F. Boyle Award for Distinguished Public Service. The award is bestowed upon a current or former government official or a physician acting in an official capacity (state or federal, executive or legislative) who has provided outstanding public service toward improving the delivery of health care.
The Walter J. McDonald Award for Young Physicians has been awarded to Lawrence D. Ward, MD, FACP. The award recognizes outstanding achievement by a physician member who is within 16 years of graduating medical school and who is not an ACP Medical Student Member or Associate.
Also, we are pleased to announce that Geno J. Merli and Howard H. Weitz have been awarded Masterships. Masters are Fellows who have been selected because of “personal character, positions of honor, contributions towards furthering the purposes of the ACP, eminence in practice or in medical research, or other attainments in science or in the art of medicine.” Masters must be highly accomplished individuals. Evidence of their achievements can come from many types of endeavors such as research, education, health care initiatives, volunteerism, and administrative positions. The Master must be distinguished by the excellence and significance of his or her contributions to the field of medicine.
The Pennsylvania Chapter recognizes and congratulates physicians who have been elected to Fellowship in the College in the past six months as well as welcomes their new members. Please view the list and join us in celebrating with them!
