Volunteer for Your Chapter

You have probably seen the emails requesting volunteers for chapter committees and the governor's council. If you have not responded, please consider doing so. These positions will not require much of your time but are valuable to us.

If you have any interest and any spare time to give to the chapter, please let us know by emailing your chapter Executive Director Kelly Hess If you have an idea of what you would like to do let us know that too.

Also, when you renew your ACP membership please consider doing an additional donation that is an option on the renewal menu. The donation goes to our chapter for support of student and resident activities.

ACP Fellowship

Are you interested in becoming a Fellow of the American College of Physicians? 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.

ACP Fellowship is primarily achieved through advancement from ACP Membership.* Fellows are authorized to use the letters FACP (Fellow of the American College of Physicians) in connection with their professional activities for as long as their membership remains current. FACP is a federally registered service mark and is defined as providing recognition by way of an honorific. Fellows of the American College of Physicians have the right to vote, hold office, and sponsor applicants for Membership and Fellowship.
