Delaware Chapter Receives John Tooker Evergreen Special Recognition 

evergreen(June 2022) The John Tooker Evergreen Awards Program provides recognition and visibility to chapters that have successfully implemented programs to increase membership, improve communication, increase member involvement, enhance diversity, foster careers in internal medicine and improve management of the chapter. The Delaware Chapter received a special recognition for their initiative, Annual Resident QI Symposium.  

Annual Resident QI Symposium 

Themes: High Value Care/Quality, Medical Students and Resident/Fellows 

This unique and separate QI symposium is the first DE ACP Chapter Activity that has focused on practice-based QI.  

The Annual Resident Quality Improvement (QI) Symposium, co-sponsored by the Delaware Chapter and the Internal Medicine Residency Program of ChristianaCare Health System, was initiated in the 2018-2019 Academic Year. More than 20 abstracts were submitted from residents who designed and conducted unique QI projects. They were judged by the Chapter and ChristianaCare IM Faculty, who scored according to a standard rubric, and selected 3 winning abstracts for podium presentations at the events. Invitees for the events included all residents from the ChristianaCare IM, Med-Peds, and Med-ER residencies, all members of the DE Chapter ACP Governor's Advisory Council, and ChristianaCare IM Faculty.  


Congratulations New Delaware Chapter Fellows

  • Francis Lim, MD FACP

(March 2022) Congratulations to the Delaware 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.

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


Congratulations to Dr. Friedland on Mastership

(October 2021) Congratulations to Dr. Allen R. Friedland, MD, MACP, the newest Delaware Chapter Mastership of the American College of Physicians (MACP).  MACP is one of the most prestigious awards in the college, for those fellows of the college who demonstrate integrity, the utmost professional behaviors, excellence in the practice of medicine, and significant impact on the profession.  MACPs represent a very small percentage of college membership. 

Join me in congratulating them on this tremendous accomplishment.
