Chapter Excellence Award

Since 2005, the Chapter Excellence/Lifetime Achievement Award has been given annually by the Iowa Chapter of the American College of Physicians as a mark of honor and recognition for achievement of a senior physician who has been a faithful member of the Chapter and who has made major contributions to medicine in internal medicine in the State of Iowa.  This person need not be retired or emeritus.  This award is unique to the Iowa Chapter and seeks to recognize distinguished long-time members of our Chapter who remain members of the Chapter, even many years after they were serving as leaders and/or receiving recognition for their work from ACP. The recognition may not be awarded annually, depending on the availability of a candidate who meets the requirements.
