Welcome to the ACP Idaho Chapter website! This site has been developed to keep internal medicine physicians and subspecialists in Idaho up-to-date on the developments and activities in our Chapter.
ACP is the nation's largest medical specialty organization. Membership comprises more than 160,000 internal medicine physicians, medical students, and allied health professionals. Our Idaho chapter has a growing membership of 466. We are your link to the larger organization, your grassroots advocacy partner, and your local supplier of educational, professional, and social programs. Our goal is to be your local professional home.
As Governor, I’m responsible for representing our Chapter to the national organization; encouraging internal medicine physicians in our state to become members; helping members advance to Fellowship; recognizing members for their achievements; soliciting input and action on national and local political issues affecting internal medicine, and then addressing state legislature to speak for our members and their patients; hosting local scientific meetings and CME events; and encouraging Medical Student Members and Resident/Fellow Members to participate in local and national College activities. We offer valuable networking, professional development, advocacy, and educational activities to enhance your member experience. My priorities for this year are to add fellows, get our new Council of Students and Council of Residents off to a good start and increase award nominations.
Keep an eye on your inbox for our chapter newsletters and other communications from the chapter highlighting member achievements, as well as upcoming opportunities to engage with one another. You can also find contact information for our chapter. We welcome any suggestions you might have for our website and the chapter - We need your feedback so we can better serve you and do our part to help make us all better, happier internal medicine physicians.
I encourage you to visit this site frequently for updates and join us at one of our upcoming programs! And if you’re not currently a member, please consider becoming one and taking advantage of all the excellent ACP benefits.
If you have questions, please reach out to me or our chapter staff, Kelly Hess at any time. I look forward to engaging with you!
