Welcome to the ACP Indiana Chapter Web site! We plan to make available to you at this site information of particular interest to Indiana ACP members. In addition, you can take advantage of many links available through our site.
ACP, founded in 1915, is the nation's largest medical specialty organization. Membership comprises 161,000 internal medicine physicians and medical students.
Internal Medicine Physicians (doctors for adults) in our region are joined in the Indiana Chapter to speak for Internal Medicine (general internal medicine physicians and subspecialists) in our state and to reflect the interests and concerns of our specialty. If you are an internist in Indiana but are not yet an ACP member, I invite you to browse our site to learn more about the College and the Chapter activities in our area. Better yet, call me to discuss what the ACP can do for you.
As Governor, I have the responsibility of representing our Chapter to the national organization; encouraging internists in our state to become members and members to advance to Fellowship; recognizing members; encouraging input and action on national and local political issues effecting the environment of internal medicine; hosting local scientific meetings and CME events; and encouraging medical student members and Associates (i.e., residents) to participate in local and national College activities.
On this page you can find the names, addresses, phone numbers, and e-mail addresses of members of various Chapter committees. I will post the most recent version of the Governor's newsletter, as well as the programs for the Chapter and the Associates meetings for the year.
If you are an internist but not yet an ACP member, I invite you to browse this site as well as the ACP home page.
If you have ideas for useful information we could include at this site, I would like to hear from you. If you thought you might find it here, but didn't, call me at the number above, or send me an e-mail.
Again, welcome to the Indiana Chapter!
