1998 Annual Meeting Recap

Introduction:

The Wisconsin Chapter of the American College of Physicians ­ American Society of Internal Medicine annual meeting held in Racine, Wisconsin from September 10th through the 12th, 1998, was memorable because the Wisconsin Chapter of the American College of Physicians and the Wisconsin Society of Internal Medicine ratified the resolution to merge as one organization ­ the Wisconsin Chapter of the American College of Physicians ­ American Society of Internal Medicine. At this historic meeting, five residency programs from the State (Gundersen Clinic, Marshfield Clinic, Medical College of Wisconsin, Mt. Sinai Hospital and the University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics ) presented posters and vignettes. These presentations were a highlight of our Chapter meeting.

These presentations have become a highlight of our State ACP meeting. So that all may appreciate the quality of our Internal Medicine residents and the quality of care given by these residents in our Wisconsin residency programs, the full text presentations for the poster and vignette sessions held at the Associates part of the meeting are presented below. Through the cooperation of the Wisconsin Medical Journal, we will publish these presentations yearly, however, there is nothing like the lively medical discussion these posters and vignettes produce at the ACP­ASIM meeting.
