Beginning in 2011, the ABIM Foundation has awarded Professionalism Article Prizes to articles documenting the impact of medical professionalism on improving health care. The Foundation has been tracking peer-reviewed journal articles on medical professionalism on an ongoing basis and created the Professionalism Article Prize program to recognize outstanding contributions to this growing body of literature.

The Selection Process

Throughout the year, ABIM Foundation staff review and select relevant articles. A pool of articles are selected and submitted to the selection committee, comprised of experts in the field, who rate them on:

  • Clarity of writing
  • Thoroughness
  • Methodology
  • Contributions to the field and society

Articles written by the American Board of Internal Medicine or ABIM Foundation Board members or staff, or resulting from projects funded by the ABIM Foundation, are not eligible.
