Governor's Message - Dr. David Anderson
This year's Internal Medicine meeting in New Orleans was another success with over 9,000 delegates from around the world along with 253 Canadians. As always, the education was excellent, and I encourage you to take the opportunity to participate in future meetings.

The annual convocation ceremony is always a highlight of the Internal Medicine Meeting. Congratulations to all new Fellows and Masters.
Our team from the Atlantic region competed in the ACP Doctor's Dilemma® Competition. Canada was well represented with teams from four Chapters – Quebec, Ontario, Alberta, Atlantic Provinces.
Congratulations to the home team, as well as to Ontario, who made it through to the semi-finals!

ACP’S Work in Physician Wellness
Recent data show that more than half of US physicians have symptoms of burnout. In response to this, ACP is in the midst of a multi-year effort to promote professional satisfaction, support physician wellness, and reduce burnout. Courses are being offered at the national ACP Internal Medicine meetings on work-life balance, resilience, burnout, and wellness.
The American Medical Association, in partnership with the ACP and the Hennepin County Medical Center, has developed Steps Forward, modules addressing key steps to help prevent burnout. For additional resources, please click here.
