David R. Anderson, MD, FRCPC, FACP, ACP Governor
I am honoured to have taken over the role of Governor of the Atlantic Provinces Chapter of the American College of Physicians (ACP). I know we have a strong history of excellence in leadership and engagement in the ACP and I hope to work with you in promoting the growth of General Internal Medicine and the medical subspecialties in our region. I am pleased that we have reformed our Atlantic Chapter Council. Our current Council members are listed below and there is absolutely room for you to get involved. Please contact me directly if you would like to get involed in ACP activities in our region. There are lots of exciting things the council has planned and we will be promoting these in subsequent newsletters.
I'd like to extend my thanks and appreciation to our out-going Atlantic Governor Dr. Ford Bursey for his work over the past four years.

Now for some updates:
The recent ACP Internal Medicine Meeting in Washington had just over 200 Canadians attending. The Canadian Chapters offered a reduced registration rate through the Canadian Delegation. Watch for this opportunity for next year's meeting in San Diego from March 30-April 1, 2017.
A highlight was the Doctor's Dilemma competition where Canada was well represented with teams from Ontario, Quebec and Alberta. The Ontario and Quebec teams made it through to the semi-finals where exciting matches took place.
Congratulations to all new Fellows! You will see the pride and enthusiasm of your Canadian Governors in the photo as we prepared for convocation.
L-R: Dr. Narmin Kassam (AB); Dr. Nadine Lahoud (QC); Dr. Ford Bursey (ATP); Dr. Irene Hramiak (ON); Dr. Glen Drobot (MB-SK)
