Brazil Chapter College Awards

Brazil Chapter Receives the 2024 John Tooker Evergreen Award

The John Tooker Evergreen Awards Program provides recognition and visibility to chapters that have successfully implemented programs to increase membership, improve communication, encourage member involvement, enhance diversity, foster careers in internal medicine or improve chapter management. Our Chapter received the 2024 John Tooker Evergreen Award for the initiative, Faculty Development Program

Faculty Development Program

In 2023, ACP National encouraged chapters to lead the organization of a Faculty Development Program (FDP). Our chapter took on the challenge of strengthening our role as a leading provider of high-quality medical education programs in the country. The three-day event included eight 25-minute medical education sessions where participants engaged in group discussion followed by debriefing sessions at the end of each day. The event attracted 250 participants from 13 different states in Brazil, which is half of the total number of states in the country. We believe that our low-cost model, based on alliances with local centers and volunteers, can be implemented in other international and national chapters.
