Congratulations New Connecticut Chapter Fellows

  • Kanwardeep S Arora, MD FACP
  • Golnaz Ashrafzadeh, MD FACP
  • Sylvester E Dijeh, MBBS FACP
  • Ramya Jayaraman, MD FACP
  • Amir Mohammad, MD FACP
  • Danise Schiliro, MD FACP

(March 2022) Congratulations to the Connecticut 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.


BOR Action on Fall '21 BOG Resolutions

(December 2021) A summary of Board of Regents (BOR) actions on resolutions debated at the Fall 2021 Board of Governors (BOG) virtual meeting is now available. Resolutions initiated by ACP members and endorsed by a chapter council and the BOG become ACP policy when adopted by the BOR.

If you have an idea you'd like to suggest to ACP, consider submitting a resolution to our chapter.

Patrick G. O'Connor, MD, MPH, MACP and Gerald I. Shulman, MD, PhD, MACP Advance to ACP Mastership

(November 2021) ACP Bylaws state that Masters shall be Fellows who have been selected because of "integrity, positions of honor, impact in practice or in medical research, or other attainments in science or in the art of medicine." Masters must be highly accomplished persons demonstrating impact in practice, leadership, or in medical research.

The first Mastership in the College was presented in 1923 to Dr. James M. Anders, who served the College as President for two terms. He was recognized for extraordinary service to the College and for being one of the most outstanding internists and medical teachers of his day.

CONGRATULATIONS TO Drs. O'Connor and Shulman!
