Glen R. Drobot, MD, FACP, ACP Governor
It is my honour to assume the role of ACP Governor for the Manitoba-Saskatchewan Chapter taking over from Dr. John Embil. My sincere thanks to Dr. Embil for work and dedication and in achieving another Excellence Award for our chapter.
The most recent event was the “Meet the Professor” hosted at the University of Manitoba. There were 65 registrants who came to hear about the “day in the life” of internists and how Internal Medicine is a springboard into a variety of different careers, specifically those that focus on the diagnosis and management of complex patients. Thank you to this year “professors” who were:
- Garrett Johnson, 2nd Year Medical Student, University of Manitoba and Dr. John Embil, Consultant, Infectious Diseases, Health Sciences Centre
- Dr. Greg Schmidt, Resident, core Internal Medicine, University of Manitoba
- Dr. Glen Drobot, General Internist, St. Boniface Hospital
- Dr. Jonathon Gabor, General Internist, Concordia Hospital
- Dr. Ryan Zarychanski, Consultant in Hematology and Critical Care Medicine, Health Sciences Centre and CancerCare Manitoba
The “Date an Internist” event, co-hosted with the Internal Medicine Interest Group at the Max Rady College of Medicine will be held in early 2017. This popular event provides medical students information about the field of General Internal Medicine and its subspecialties.
Internal Medicine Meeting 2016 Washington
It was great to see all the attendees at the ACP Internal Medicine Meeting in Washington. A highlight was Convocation where the College recognizes and applauds its new Fellows and the recipients of various honors. Congratulations to all new Fellows!
