The American College of Medical Toxicology and the Medical Toxicology Foundation are pleased to announce that Courtney Temple, MD is the inaugural recipient of the Charles E. Becker Medal for Outstanding Achievement as a Medical Toxicology Fellow. This new award was established with the generous support of the late Dr. Charles Becker, a pioneering leader in the field of medical toxicology. In keeping with his vision, the Becker Medal recognizes a recently graduated medical toxicology fellow who has demonstrated outstanding achievement in scholarship, education, and/or research, and who has made contributions to public health, innovation, humanitarianism, and/or “making a positive difference in the world.” Dr. Temple completed the Medical Toxicology Fellowship program at Oregon Health and Science University in 2022. She is currently an Assistant Professor of Emergency Medicine at OHSU and a member of the core faculty of the OHSU Medical Toxicology Fellowship Program. Dr. Temple will formally receive the Becker Medal during a ceremony at the 2023 ACMT Annual Scientific Meeting in La Jolla, CA.

ACMT takes pleasure in recognizing the following recent medical toxicology fellowship graduates who were also nominated for the Becker Medal by their fellowship programs: Marielle Brenner, MD (Indiana University School of Medicine); Ari Filip, MD (Washington University, St. Louis), Powell Graham, MD (University of Massachusetts), and C.
