I've been a proud member of ACP since residency. Over the years,
I helped organize state and national resident/student programs, and
have served on the Annual Scientific Planning Committee. As the
current Secretary/Treasurer, the Governor and I led the strategic
planning process with input from the Governor's council. I,
therefore, feel equipped to assume the role of Governor. Going
forward, MA-ACP needs to better engage its constituents, internists
and subspecialists. Physicians are increasingly burdened with
unreimbursed administrative tasks and subspecialists feel
disenfranchised with decreasing reimbursement, both being vital
areas that can be addressed, now that global payment models are
here to stay, by becoming a voice with government and payors.
Reinvigorating the community internist struggling to keep up with
new demands on their practice is an important area of focus. Our
community internists serve as mentors to residents and students
deciding on future careers and to our early career physicians.
