The Jacobi Medallion

History

As President of the Associated Alumni in 1952, Dr. William M. Hitzig conceived the idea of commemorating the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Mount Sinai Hospital by honoring Mount Sinai physicians for distinguished achievement in the field of medicine or for extraordinary service to the alumni.  Dr. Abraham Jacobi, after whom the medallion is named, was one of the early presidents of The Mount Sinai Hospital Medical Board and eventually became President of the AMA.  He is credited with founding the specialty of pediatrics and, together with his wife, established the first pediatric clinic in the United States.  A man of broad interests, humanistic philosophy, investigative acumen, and clinical skill, he stands as a model not only for Mount Sinai, but the entire medical profession.  

The Jacobi Medallion has been awarded by The Mount Sinai Alumni since 1952 for distinguished achievement in the field of medicine or extraordinary service to the Hospital, the School, or the Alumni Association.
