Governor's Message - Dr. Glen Drobot
Welcome spring! I am pleased to report that the recent ACP Internal Medicine Meeting in San Diego was another success with approximately 6,900 physician attendees from around the world, including over 250 Canadians.
Canada had 5 teams compete in this year's annual ACP Doctor's Dilemma® with Alberta and Ontario making it through to the semi-finals. Congratulations to the Ontario team who won a coveted spot in the finals. They did not take the trophy home but there is always next year!
The 8th annual Internal Medicine Interest Group's “Speed Dating an Internist” was enjoyed by students and physicians alike! On February 24th, 60 first and second year medical students from the University of Manitoba dined with 16 physicians representing 13 sub-specialties of internal medicine. Students heard from a variety of internists, who dispelled myths and inspired interest as they spoke candidly about the day-to-day life in their practice.
On March 14th, the Internal Medicine Interest Group at the University of Manitoba hosted a Renal Failure Skills Night for 20 medical students. The event, led by Dr. Thomas Jacob and 6 internal medicine residents, was appreciated by students, who reviewed the approach to renal failure through clinical cases covering evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment.
Join us for the next skills event, Geriatric Pearls & Skills, that will be co-hosted by the Internal Medicine Interest Group and the Geriatrics Interest Group at the University of Manitoba. Dr. Jacob has prepared an excellent curriculum. Mark your calendars for Monday, April 10, 2017; click here to register.
