(July 2023) Congratulations to the Chapter's new Fellows. Fellowship in the College is an honor. Being an FACP® is a distinction earned from colleagues who recognize your accomplishments and achievements over and above the practice of medicine. The most important considerations for ACP Fellowship are excellence and contributions made to both medicine and to the broader community in which the internal medicine physician lives and practices.
(July 2023) Are you concerned about a practice or clinical issue or have an idea you'd like to suggest? If so, you might consider submitting a resolution to your Governor or chapter council.
Initiating a resolution provides ACP members an opportunity to focus attention at the ACP national level on a particular issue or topic that concerns them. Participating in the Board of Governors resolutions process provides the ACP grassroots member a voice and allows you to shape College policy that impacts the practice of internal medicine.
Not sure how to begin drafting a resolution? Researching the College's position on an issue can give you a start. The recently released ACP Board of Governors Resolutions Guide for ACP Members is now available to download and will help, too. The Guide was created to provide members a short overview of the resolutions process essentials and highlights critical ACP online resources you must use.
Once drafted, members must submit resolutions to their Governor and/or chapter council. Chapter council approval to move resolutions forward to ACP national is required. A resolution becomes a resolution of the chapter once the chapter council approves forwarding it to national. If effecting change interests you, the deadline for submitting new resolutions to be heard at the Spring 2024 Board of Governors Meeting is October 16, 2023.
Share your good idea with us. Draft a resolution.

(May 2023) The John Tooker Evergreen Awards Program provides recognition and visibility to chapters that have successfully implemented programs to increase membership, improve communication, encourage member involvement, enhance diversity, foster careers in internal medicine or improve chapter management. The North Carolina Chapter received the 2023 John Tooker Evergreen Award for their initiative, Well-being Communication and Collaboration for Community.
Well-being Communication and Collaboration for Community
The goal of virtual delivery of wellness information via videos grew out of the need to provide bite-sized, real-time information to support our members during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The North Carolina Chapter strategized to increase membership by offering individual well-being resources during the early years of the pandemic while creating a sense of community. The Chapter developed live, and evergreen content publicized via newsletters, through a collaboration with several ACP chapters with limited programming, and ACP Well-Being Champions. In collaboration with the Georgia Chapter, the North Carolina Chapter developed a monthly virtual well-being program and separately, developed ten coaching videos on wellness information. This program was innovative because the Chapter had not previously offered virtual meeting opportunities nor had the capacity to store videos for members to watch./p>
(March 2023) We would like to congratulate our chapter members on their election to Fellow of the American College of Physicians. The distinction recognizes achievements in internal medicine.
