ACMQ AWARDS

Founders' Award

The Founders Award is for outstanding contributions by an individual to the field of Medical Quality Management or Clinical Quality Improvement in the areas of scholarship, ideas, or the promotion of the specialty. It may be awarded to a fellow or non-fellow, to a physician or a non-physician. The award will be given in the name of the Founders of the College to perpetuate the memory of their work, and to provide an historic link to the origins of ACMQ.
