Potential ACP Governor-elect Candidates

Nominations Due by April 14, 2022

(March 2022) As you know, the ACP national office is conducting a Governor-elect election for our chapter this year. The Local Nominations Committees will be responsible for identifying up to two candidates who are willing and able to serve a four-year term (April 2024 - April 2028), in addition to a year of training as Governor-elect (April 2023 - April 2024).

We are looking for a dynamic leader who exhibits integrity, shows commitment to the College and demonstrates dedication to the Chapter and the medical community. The successful candidate will work with Chapter members and with leaders in internal medicine at the national level. A Governor typically spends several hours per week on College Business with the support of executive administrative staff. Serving as an ACP Governor can be an extremely rewarding and life changing experience.

Only ACP MACPs and FACPs are eligible for consideration. If you would like to submit the name of a colleague or self-nominate, contact Chapter Staff. 

All potential candidate information must be submitted by Wednesday April 14, 2022.

(December 2021) A summary of Board of Regents (BOR) actions on resolutions debated at the Fall 2021 Board of Governors (BOG) virtual meeting is now available. Resolutions initiated by ACP members and endorsed by a chapter council and the BOG become ACP policy when adopted by the BOR.

If you have an idea you'd like to suggest to ACP, consider submitting a resolution to our chapter.


Congratulations New Mexico Chapter Fellows

  • Celina Lopez, MD FACP
  • Jaime A Quintero Alcaraz, MD FACP

(December 2021) Congratulations to the Mexico Chapter's newest Fellows. Fellowship in the College is an honor. Being an FACP® is a distinction earned from colleagues who recognize your accomplishments and achievements over and above the practice of medicine. The most important considerations for ACP Fellowship are excellence and contributions made to both medicine and to the broader community in which the internist lives and practices.


Congratulations to Esperanza Martinez Abundis, MD, FACP, recipient of the Dra. Rosario Barroso Moguel Award from the Mexican National Academy of Medicine
