Nominations Now Accepted for Paul V. Miles Award

Monday, September 28, 2015 - 11:00

Nominations are now being accepted for the 2016 Paul V. Miles Fellowship, honoring Dr. Miles’ years of service as Senior Vice President for Maintenance of Certification and Quality.

This annual fellowship is given to a pediatrician who has demonstrated excellence in improving the quality of care for children. The recipient will receive a cash award and an invitation to visit with the ABP in Chapel Hill, North Carolina to share their ideas, innovations and enthusiasm for quality improvement with the ABP staff. During the trip to Chapel Hill, he or she will also be invited to present Pediatric Grand Rounds at both the University of North Carolina and Duke.

The fellow’s experiences help focus and improve the work of the Board in providing QI guidance to all diplomates.

Do you know someone, mid-career, who has led an innovative quality improvement effort or published research to advance the science of quality improvement for children? The impact of the nominee’s work on QI will be the primary selection criterion. Of particular interest are candidates who have led or participated in collaborative networks that have improved care practices or child health outcomes.

Please send a cover letter and the nominee’s CV to and include “Attn: Dr. Virginia Moyer” in the subject line.

All submissions must be received by October 16, 2015.
