In May 2020, Dr. Irene Hramiak, a former Governor of the Ontario Chapter, became the most recent Canadian physician to advance to Mastership in the College. Masterships are awarded 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.” Dr. Hramiak is an endocrinologist who has led a number of landmark research studies related to diabetes. She also is a Professor of Medicine at Schulich Medicine & Dentistry and continues to care for patients.
Canadian Chapters receive 2021 Chapter Excellence Bronze Award

The award recognizes chapters that achieve basics in chapter management. In order to achieve the Chapter Excellence Award, chapters must meet twenty-one Bronze criteria. Criteria include such activities as being involved in advocacy activities, communicating with members, having a chapter/regional scientific meeting along with a planning committee, having a sound financial structure in place, recruiting and advancing members and having an awards committee that identifies candidates for local or national awards. The Committee would like to extend a special thanks to those chapter members who assisted in all of these endeavors.
