The ACCP Honors & Awards Committee and Selection of Award Winners Process


The Honors & Awards Committee is comprised of individuals who are representative of the membership of ACCP and serves to recognize excellence in the field of clinical pharmacology through a robust program of nomination and peer review of candidates for a series of awards.

Committee Composition

  • The Committee Chair is a member of the ACCP Board of Regents or a Fellow.
  • Committee members are hand selected, rather than having this be a standard volunteer opportunity.
  • Committee members include a mix of senior, mid-level and early-stage colleagues (minimum 3-4 years into their career) from a cross section of degrees and affiliations represented by the membership.

Guidelines for Peer Review of Nominations

The following guidelines for review of nominations have been approved by the ACCP Board of Regents. Committee members:

  • Disclose any conflicts of interest they may have with any of the nominees regardless of the circumstances.
  • Are mindful of diversity in the nominees.
  • Individually review each nominee package (nomination letter, CV, bio and support letters) and determine the worthiness of each candidate based on the description and criteria of the award.
  • Participate in a series of meetings to review and discuss each nominee
  • Vote independently for the recipient each award.
  • Independent votes are tallied and verified to select the final recipient of each award.
  • Prepare final nominee recommendations to present to the Board of Regents for final approval.
