Fostering Excellence in Internal Medicine

Join us and your colleagues in internal medicine at the next scientific meeting of the Illinois Northern and Southern Chapter of the American College of Physicians, being held virtually October 15, 2021.

Connect with the Illinois Northern and Southern Chapter's rich source of knowledge content and networking by attending our premier meeting for General Internists, Subspecialty internists, Family practitioners, Fellows in subspecialty training, Hospitalists, Allied health practitioners, Residents, and Medical students interested in internal medicine.

This conference is about making personal contacts and getting involved in your chapter. You'll engage with people who know your challenges and can help you find solutions.
