MESSAGE FROM THE GOVERNOR
It was great seeing many of you during the local ACP-CSIM- ASMIQ joint meeting in Montreal a few weeks ago.
I am pleased to note that our chapter has again won an ACP Chapter Excellence Award! There are pre-determined criteria that the chapter met through the efforts and diligence of our council, by my predecessor, Dr. Donald Echenberg and the excellent work done by Ms. Domenica Utano, our supporting staff.
The Quebec chapter is proud to support a novel educational tool, a podcast launched this fall by Dr. Luc Lanthier, FACP and professor at the University of Sherbrooke, called BaladoCritique. It consists of a monthly podcast critically reviewing a recent scientific publication with a high impact on the practice of general internal medicine. You could access it on iTunes, on Stitches or through this website.
Two joint meetings between our Chapter and the ASMIQ were held in 2016. The first one, an update in dermatology and immunology, held in Ste-Foy and more recently the CSIM-ACP-ASMIQ meeting which took place in Montreal. Evaluation feedback was excellent and member participation and attendance exceeded expectations!
Congratulations to Quebec new Fellows who are invited to participate in this year's convocation ceremony that will take place in San Diego during the ACP's 2017 Internal Medicine Meeting:
Dr. Chantale Vallée
Dr. Nadine Sauvé
Dr. Matthew Cheng
Dr. Martin Albert
Our Chapter is working on initiatives to support residents and medical students. Dr. Marilyne Brault, our resident representative, has organized a Doctor's Dilemma competition. Dr. Jean-Pascal Costa, internist at Notre Dame hospital, CHUM, held MKSAP review sessions with a group of residents. These sessions were extremely appreciated by the participants. On behalf of the chapter, thank you to Drs. Brault and Costa.
It is my honour and privilege to continue to serve as your local chapter governor. Wishing you a wonderful holiday season and many happy returns in the year to come!
