Happy 2017! We just celebrated the New Year's and we are in the last throws of its first quarter already. So is life. Well, I am excited to share some wonderful news with you. After a lapse of years, we will have two of our Fellows honored with Masterships at the upcoming ACP Convocation in San Diego – Drs. Bob Hopkins and Dan Rahn. We are proud of their achievements. We will celebrate with an Arkansas Chapter dinner after the Convocation at Lou & Mickey's at 8.00 pm. The following evening, our Chapter will be joining Alabama, Louisiana and Mississippi for a Reception at the Marriott Marquis San Diego Marina. We are continuing our efforts to identify other worthy Arkansan Fellows for Masterships, under the guidance of current Masters.
As most of you know, we are going from having a single UAMS Internal Medicine residency program to having many in our state, both under the auspices of UAMS and outside it. While that is needed and exciting, it creates new challenges for our ACP Chapter, from the composition of the Council to the annual clinical vignettes competition. Luckily, we have tremendous support from all around the state to address these growing pains successfully and emerge as a more vibrant and successful Chapter. Also, it is time to elect our new Governor this Fall. I have formed a nominating committee comprising the past three Governors to help us do that.
The two new osteopathic medical schools in our state, with about two hundred and fifty additional medical students enrolled every year, most of whom are slated to serve as primary care physicians in our state and elsewhere, give our Chapter an exciting new project to work on. ACP Arkansas Chapter is well positioned and will work hard to become their new ‘home’. The preparations for the Annual Chapter meeting in the Fall are underway led by Co-Chairs, Drs. Keyur Vyas and Ryan Bariola. As before, expect a fascinating scientific program. This year, the ACP EVP, Dr. Darilyn Moyer will be joining us, as well.
