I am pleased to propose Ramon F Soto, MD.MACP, the first Chapter Governor and the first Master.

He opened the first ICU at the largest Obstetrical Hospital in the country, starting the resident training in critical care, mainly in the treatment of pregnant women complications. He was President of Venezuelan Internal Medicine Society and continues advising the Board. He has been a very compromise member with the Chapter activities since the beginning; he has chaired the Executive, Scientific and Credentials Committees, and is a fountain of advice for the Governors. Dr. Soto is an outstanding human being and physician, always passionately ready to collaborate with the Venezuelan Chapter and the ACP. Dr. Soto is an active participant at every annual Scientific Chapter meeting both, as a speaker and clinical session coordinator.
