Following Professor Jane Dacre’s election as President of the Royal College of Physicians last year she has since been awarded several prestigious titles and accolades. In October Jane received an Honorary Fellowship from the Academy of Medical Educators in recognition of distinguished service to medical education.
Jane has also achieved a place in the renowned Debrett’s 500 for 2015 as one of the most influential people in her field of science and medicine, and a place in the HSJ100 – the annual list of the most influential people in health. Jane has said:
I am surprised and honoured to be included on this list of prestigious people from several sectors. I will continue to promote the values of the Royal College of Physicians, for the benefit of patients, and thank UCL for continuing to support me in this endeavour.
In November Jane was also honoured to receive an award in recognition of professional excellence from BAPIO (British Association of Physicians of Indian Origin). She was presented with the award at their annual conference by Dr Ramesh Mehta and Professor Rajan Madhok, the President and Chair respectively of BAPIO.
