Between 2003 and 2011, I have served as a formal representative
of Dr. Kurokawa, the first Governor of the Japan Chapter. Through
communication with national leaders of ACP with whom I have strong
contacts, I envision the Chapter where all members - young and old,
generalists and specialists - enjoy benefits of membership,
especially educational opportunities to enhance clinical expertise
in Internal Medicine. The ACP Japan Chapter will be particularly
attractive to young physicians, and our mission is to attain
sustainable quality for future generations.
