Welcome from the Governor
Welcome to the Web site for the Michigan Chapter of the American College of Physicians!
ACP is the nation's largest medical specialty organization. ACP, founded in 1915, and ASIM, founded in 1956 merged in July of 1998. Membership comprises more than 161,000 internal medicine physicians and medical students. Internists provide the majority of health care to adults in America.
Internists in our region are joined in the Michigan Chapter, to speak for Internal Medicine in our state and to reflect the interests and concerns of our specialty. If you are an internist in Michigan 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.
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.
Our Chapter Governor-Elect, Sarah Hartley, MD, FACP, will become Chapter Governor in April 2022, so this is my final year as your Governor, and I am proud and happy to serve this Chapter.
No matter where you look there is work to do for physicians and patients in Michigan. The fun part is connecting with your colleagues and sharing to energize your practice and love of medicine. Please keep in touch and let us know what more our ACP Chapter can do to serve you and your patients.
Martha Gray, MD, FACP
