Dan Woodliff, MD, FACP, ACP Governor
In a candid letter from ABIM President Richard
Baron stated "We got it wrong. We're sorry." ABIM
made sweeping changes in the reporting, content, timing and
requirements for Maintenance of Certification (MOC) that will help
make this a more practical process. We still feel that the
questions used in the pre-test preparation and test need to be
revised to more accurately reflect what the general internist needs
to know but this is a huge step in the right direction and we are
proud of ACP Leadership for the many hours of hard work that went
in to this effort.
Our friends and colleagues in Louisiana did a fantastic job
again, and the Roosevelt Hotel has been renewed to its old
splendor. One of the highlights for me was our Dr. Michael
Hall's talk on Noninvasive Cardiac Testing. We heard
compelling new evidence for Peritoneal Dialysis and outstanding
keynote talks from Christine and Thomas Sinsky on
ways to bring back the Joy in Practice. I suffered through the MOC
Module with my friend and former partner Dr. Gary
Nowell. Darilyn Moyer, our Board of
Governors Chair, and Dave Sgrignoli, head of
Membership Development and Marketing, bravely hopscotched down from
the snowy north to share some insights related to how ACP fosters
excellence and adds value to the practice of Internal Medicine.
Additionally, several residents and students from UMMC and Keesler
Air Force Base (listed below) presented posters and gave oral
presentations and represented the chapter very well in the

We are proud to announce Dr. Skip Nolan as our
very deserving new laureate and want to thank Dr. Helen

Dr. Calvin Thigpen, Dr. Jessie Lavender and
Dr. Day Lennep will represent Mississippi at
Leadership Day this May. They are excited about learning how to be
Advocates for internal medicine and for graduate medical education.
They are taking their formidable optimism and speaking skills to
Washington D.C., and will meet with members of the House of
Representatives and Senate.
It is time to make those airline and hotel reservations in
Boston for April 30th - May 2nd if you haven't already! This
promises to be one of the best national meetings ever. ACP
continues to offer the premier CME for internists, and this year
will be exceptional. We have several members who have recently been
elected as Fellows and have been invited to walk at convocation
(see below). Additionally, we have several residents and a
subspecialty fellow from UMMC who are presenting their work at the
abstract competition (see below). Patrick Alguire,
who presented at our meeting in Point Clear in September 2014, will
give an update on MOC since the recent ABIM announcement on
Saturday morning, May 2nd; and many, many others will be on hand to
provide updates on the College's activities. It will certainly be a
meeting you don't want to miss!
