Alabama Chapter College Awards

Alabama 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, Laureate Society Fellowship Program.

Laureate Society Fellowship Program

The Alabama Chapter Laureate Society Fellowship is a two-year, fully funded program for residents and ACP members. Nominations are solicited from all internal medicine residency program directors in Alabama for outstanding PGY-1 or PGY-2 candidates who possess unusual leadership qualities and interest in the activities of organized medicine at the local, state, and national levels. The purpose of the Chapter Laureate Society Fellowship Award is to promote an early and deep integration of promising resident physicians into ACP, introduce them to ACP chapter leaders, ACP national leaders, policymakers, mentors, and to encourage and promote their paths to advocacy and leadership at the state and national levels in the College. Two individuals were invited to participate in the first year of programming.
