ACP, founded in 1915, is the nation’s largest medical specialty organization. Membership comprises 133,000 internal medicine physicians and medical students.
As governor, I fulfill the role of representing the concerns of our chapter to the national staff. I look for your input on local and national political issues relevant to internal medicine. I also need your input on local chapter issues – who do we want to honor with the Laureate award? What speakers or topics do we want at our local chapter meeting each Fall? How can we involve students and residents in a meaningful way? Does our chapter have a role in the issue of patient safety or quality improvement? There are many more questions out there we need to explore.
Any suggestions or concerns you have for the chapter or the national organization- please let me know. I look forward to hearing from you.
