Physicians must have a crucial role in shaping the healthcare
system that evolves over the next decade. After more than 30 years
in clinical medicine, both in academic and practice settings, I am
convinced that the ACP is the most important voice for internal
medicine and each of its subspecialties in this effort. We must
formulate and maintain standards of clinical excellence amidst
changing patterns of care delivery. Members should set examples for
medical students and residents that encourage careers in primary
care and strengthen commitments to medical education and research.
Challenges in the current environment are daunting, but the ACP is
well-positioned to address them effectively. As always, the ACP
should continue strong advocacy for the membership, the medical
community in general, and, most importantly, our patients.
