Mark L. Graber Diagnostic Quality Award
Nomination Deadline: September 1, 2020
The Society to Improve Diagnosis in Medicine (SIDM) has established the annual Mark L. Graber Diagnostic Quality Award to be presented to a person, group, or organization that has made important contributions to the reduction of diagnostic error.
The award recognizes either a total body of work (“lifetime achievement”) or a significant contribution in the field. The nominee can have had influence in the fields of education, research, practice improvement, patient engagement, and/or policy.
The award was named in honor of Mark L. Graber, MD, FACP, the founder of the Diagnostic Error in Medicine conference series and SIDM. Mark served as the SIDM President from 2011 through 2018, and his contributions constitute the foundations of our field and the focus on diagnostic quality and safety. Mark received the first Mark L. Graber Diagnostic Quality Award at the 2018 Diagnostic Error in Medicine Conference in recognition of his many achievements and his impact on the field of diagnostic quality and safety.
The award will be presented this October and the awardee will receive a complimentary registration to our SIDM2020 virtual conference.
