India Chapter Wins 2022 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, increase member involvement, enhance diversity, foster careers in internal medicine and improve management of the chapter. The India Chapter received a 2022 Evergreen Award for their program, Case File for Early Career Physicians.
Case File for Early Career Physicians
Themes: Early Career Physicians, Education, High Value Care/Quality, International, Medical Students and Residents/Fellows, Membership, Physician Well-being and Professional Satisfaction
As a measurable goal, we saw an inspiring addition to ACP India Membership. It helped boost fallen morale of front-line early career physicians.
The program supported Early Career Physicians by providing a guide on how to handle challenging clinical problems. The case file series was taught by a senior professor of medicine who experienced similar problems. It was designed to recruit and retain early career physicians. Due to the additional stressors place on ECPs, one lecture was focused on wellbeing and medicolegal information. In total 2,184 individuals attended Case Files for Early Career Physicians series.
We are pleased to announce that our chapter is in receipt of the Bronze Level of the 2021 Chapter Excellence Award! The award recognizes chapters that achieve basics in chapter management.
