December 07, 2010

INDIANAPOLIS - The American College of Physicians has announced that will present one of its highest honors, the Alvan R. Feinstein Memorial Award to William M. Tierney, M.D., president and C.E.O. of the Regenstrief Institute and the associate dean for clinical effectiveness research at the Indiana University School of Medicine.

The internal medicine physicians organization also announced that it has named Douglas P. Zipes, M.D., IU School of Medicine Distinguished Professor Emeritus, and Thomas S. Inui, M.D., professor of medicine, to ACP masterships in recognition of "exceedingly stellar career accomplishments and service to the organization."

Additionally, the Indiana Chapter of the ACP has presented a Laureate Award to David W. Crabb, M.D., chairman and professor of medicine at the IU School of Medicine.

Dr. Tierney is Chancellor's Professor of Medicine at IU. He is a member of the Institute of Medicine of the National Academies and a fellow of the American College of Medical Informatics.

Dr. Zipes, is a past president of the American College of Cardiology and a past chairman of the American Board of Internal Medicine. He is a recipient of the 2010 Indiana University President's Medal for Excellence.

A past president and C.E.O. and current investigator of the Regenstrief Institute, Dr. Inui is a member of the Institute of Medicine.

Dr. Crabb is John B. Hickam Professor of Medicine at the IU School of Medicine and a member of the Board of Trustees of the Health and Hospital Corporation of Marion County, Ind. He is also a co-host of Sound Medicine, a radio program produced by the IU School of Medicine and radio station WFYI.

"It is an honor to work with such distinguished colleagues at the IU School of Medicine. Drs. Tierney, Zipes, Inui and Crabb embody the best that medical education, patient care, and science have to offer through their insight, dedication, perseverance and compassion. Indiana University and its medical students, residents, fellows and faculty physicians have benefited greatly from their broad contributions," said D. Craig Brater, M.D., dean of the IU School of Medicine.

The Alvan R. Feinstein Memorial Award is presented biannually to an American physician who has made a major contribution to the science of patient care in activities that Dr. Feinstein broadly defined as clinical epidemiology or clinimetrics, involving the direct study of patients' clinical conditions.

ACP Masters comprise a small group of highly distinguished physicians who have achieved recognition in medicine by exhibiting preeminence in practice or medical research, holding positions of high honor, or making significant contributions to medical science or the art of medicine.

Formal presentation of these national honors will take place at the ACP annual meeting in San Diego in April 2011.

The Laureate Award honors members of the ACP in Indiana who have demonstrated by their example and conduct an abiding commitment to excellence in medical care, education or research, and in service to their community and the ACP. Dr. Crabb received the award at the recent annual meeting of Indiana chapter of the ACP.
