I am delighted to share some updates regarding recent activities
sponsored by ACP in our region.
In the area of advocacy, we share some updates on this year's
successful ACP Sacramento Leadership Day in February and ACP
Leadership Day on Capitol Hill in May. Members from our region did
an outstanding job in representing the interests of our members and
advocating on issues affecting Internal Medicine and physicians in
In April, ACP Southern California Region I sponsored another
successful Board Review for medical students in our region. The
event brought together students from UCLA and USC to network and
prepare for their exams. The event was very well attended and
Based on feedback from our members, this year we started a new
Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program to aid our members with
their recertification requirements. These highly rated dinner
sessions were offered at multiple locations throughout the region.
My goal is to give back to our members and offer programs that meet
their educational needs. I am always interested in hearing more
from you about what ACP can do for you.
ACP members recently received an email from our ACP national
leadership in regards to the new American Board of Internal
Medicine (ABIM) MOC requirements. We have certainly heard your
voice and concerns, and would like to take this opportunity to let
our members know that ACP has made this a top priority. There is
active communication going on between ACP and ABIM on a daily
basis. I can report that already some progress is being made in the
area of patient survey requirements. We expect to have more news
from ACP and ABIM about some of these modifications as they are
being finalized by ABIM. We will make every effort to keep you
updated with any developments in this area.
I would like to update you on a few upcoming events. The Chapter
will be sponsoring a board review course for residents on July 12th
and 13th in our region. In addition, this year's regional meeting
will take place in Orange County on October 18-19th at the
DoubleTree by Hilton Anaheim-Orange County. We look forward to
seeing you at the meeting. I welcome your suggestions and/or
recommendations on how we can offer more educational opportunities
for our members at every level.
Finally, I am hoping most of our members will join us at next
year's 2015 ACP National Internal Medicine Meeting, which will take
place on April 30 - May 2, 2015 in Boston. Next year marks ACP's
100 year anniversary. ACP is working on a special program to mark
this milestone. I encourage members who may be interesting in
advancing to Fellow of ACP to contact us so that they may have an
opportunity to be honored at next year's convocation at the ACP
National Meeting during the 100th year celebration.
