The Maryland Chapter of the American College of Physicians is
among the premiere ACP chapters in the country. Our strengths
include a richly diverse membership, outstanding educational
offerings, and great opportunities to network, find mentors, and
learn from each other. We'll need to continue to build membership
at all levels while ensuring that everyone sees membership as not
only a great value but essential to their professional identity.
I'd also like to see our membership get greater national
recognition, both by increasing the number of nominations for
Fellowship and Mastership and by increasing the number of
nominations for national awards. As we navigate what promises to be
dramatic changes in healthcare, the Maryland Chapter has the
responsibility to bring the perspectives of all members to local
and national conversations on healthcare, while keeping our members
informed. It is my hope that the Maryland Chapter will be leaders
in this regard.
