Congratulations New Colorado Chapter Fellows

  • Emerson N Gonzalez, MD FACP

(December 2021) Congratulations to the Colorado Chapter's newest Fellows. Fellowship in the College is an honor. Being an FACP® is a distinction earned from colleagues who recognize your accomplishments and achievements over and above the practice of medicine. The most important considerations for ACP Fellowship are excellence and contributions made to both medicine and to the broader community in which the internist lives and practices.
