Sinai Gastroenterologist Receives Prestigious Award

Sudhir K. Dutta, M.D., the head of the Division of Gastroenterology at Sinai Hospital, was awarded the designation “Master of the American College of Gastroenterology” at the ACG’s annual scientific meeting last weekend.

The ACG is a national association representing more than 11,000 clinical gastroenterologists and other specialists in digestive diseases. The ACG names very few of its Fellows as Masters, says President Philip O. Katz, M.D.

“It limits this distinction only to those few, who because of their recognized stature and achievement in clinical gastroenterology, and because of their contributions to the College in service and leadership, have been recommended by the Awards Committee and approved by the Board of Trustees,” Katz says.

Dutta said he is honored by the recognition of his peers.

“It is a rare distinction bestowed by the College. They have given it to only 104 people in the entire history of the College," he says.

Dutta has represented Maryland at the annual meeting for several years as governor of the ACG. He has published more than 300 articles and abstracts in scientific journals. In 2000, Dutta was selected by Baltimore magazine as one of its “Best Physicians in the Region."
