Es un placer saludarle y manifestar el firme propósito de seguir colaborando con la ACP para el fortalecimiento y crecimiento del mismo en  México.  Es un gran desafío, pero la experiencia adquirida, tanto administrativa como académica, serán las herramientas para lograrlo.   Asi mismo, con el espíritu de compañerismo y el trabajo de los médicos internistas, estoy seguro de que podemos impulsar fuertemente el crecimiento del ACP en México con base en varios ejes de trabajo.   Aumentando la presencia del ACP en México, informando de los beneficios, principalmente académicos al pertenecer al ACP.   Estrechar los lazos  entre los miembros de la ACP y el capítulo Mexicano, lo que mejorara las reuniones  teniendo mayor productividad en los foros donde se reunen los medicos internistas del pais.
