Chapter Members Receive National ACP Awards

We are very pleased to announce that two members of the Maryland Chapter have won the following very prestigious awards presented by the national American College of Physicians organization:

Dr. Janaki Deepak has been chosen to receive the Herbert S. Waxman Award for Outstanding Medical Student Educator from the American College of Physicians.  The award recognizes an ACP member who is an internal medicine interest group leader, clinical clerkship director, program director, or faculty member (no higher than the level of an associate professor of medicine) who  spends a significant amount of time teaching medical students.

Dr. Deidra Crews has been chosen to receive Mastership.  ACP Bylaws state that Masters shall be Fellows who have been selected because of "integrity, positions of honor, impact in practice or in medical research, or other attainments in science or in the art of medicine." Masters must be highly accomplished persons demonstrating impact in practice, leadership, or in medical research. Evidence of their achievements can come from many types of endeavors such as renown within their field and/or ACP chapter, research, education, health care initiatives, volunteerism, administrative positions, care of patients, and service to their community.

Dr. Deepak has been an instrumental and very important part of the Maryland ACP since her residency. She has been involved with student and resident activities for a number of years, and without her we would not be able to host the Doctors and Student Dilemma contest so successfully each year - EVEN DURING A PANDEMIC.  She has served as co-chair to our Internal Medical Graduates group (IMG) for several years, and recently has taken on some new roles in the Chapter, serving as co-chair of the Health & Public Policy committee and Vice President of the Chapter.

Dr. Crews has been a very important member of our Chapter and was even the first recipient of our Diversity & Inclusion award presented at our 2021 Chapter meeting.  Her career at Johns Hopkins has been one devoted to the Baltimore community.  She is so very deserving of being awarded a Mastership in ACP.

Please take the time to send congratulations to both of these ladies who have been so successful in their careers both locally and nationally.
