The Board of Regents authorizes chapters to honor Members, Fellows, and Masters of ACP who have demonstrated by their example and conduct an abiding commitment to excellence in medical care, education, research, or service to their community, their chapter, and ACP. Awardees have a long history of excellence and peer approval in the specialty of Internal Medicine. The first Alabama Chapter Laureate recognition awards were presented in 1988 and this tradition continues.
The Alabama ACP Laureate Society was created in 2022 by the chapter council and Chapter Governor. The purpose of the society is mentorship. Specifically, the society seeks to identify Resident physicians and early career physicians who aspire to leadership positions in the American College of Physicians and to promote their leadership portfolios.
