It is my vision for the Hawaii Chapter of the ACP to continue to raise the awareness of Hawaii internists of their role to continue the highest quality, compassionate care, and to foster the sense of nurturance of the intellectual and dynamic nature of Internal Medicine in our younger physicians. We will commit to continuing to foster Internal Medicine as a fulfilling and challenging career choice for medical students and residents, in addition to teaching Internal Medicine as a basic foundation of all health care. The chapter will continue to encourage scholarship, reflective practice and a sense of responsibility to promote health by facilitating successful Chapter Annual Scientific Meetings, publication of scholarly works, and encouraging inquiry at all levels of health care, and in cooperation with our subspecialty and other medical colleagues. In addition, we will continue to be advocates for health promotion through effective public education.
