The end of summer is always bittersweet but the excitement that
a fresh group of medical students brings and the relief that our
new interns have gotten their first couple of rotations over with
is energizing. I love cycling in the fall.
Our Chapter annual Meeting planning committee headed by Dr.
Sandhye Wahi-Guraj worked hard over the summer to put together a
fabulous program. The dates have changed and so has the format. The
ACP Nevada Chapter Scientific Meeting; The Clinician's Role in High
Value Care is scheduled for December 4-5, 2015 at the Four Season
Hotel, Las Vegas Nevada. Friday night will feature a banquet for
all Chapter members at no cost, but you must register. It is
primarily a social event but we will take the opportunity of being
together to bestow chapter awards. The student and resident posters
will be on display. In addition, we have invited leaders or all or
our Nevada medical schools (all four of them!) to briefly address
the group with updates on status and program plans. I'm thrilled
with the line-up for Saturday- it will be a long but action packed
day. Our guests are Dr. Sue Hingle, a member of the ACP Board of
Regents who will talk about the ACP High Value Care (HVC)
Initiative. Several of our talks during the day will discuss HVC in
different disciplines. Dr. Ken Kamler, the author of Doctor on
Everest and other books will talk about "Emergency Medicine on
Mount Everest." You'll be looking for an oxygen tank by the time he
is finished. We will, of course, have our State Doctor's Dilemma
competition. I urge everyone to attend. We would love to have
participation of our Advanced Practice RN and Physician Assistant
colleagues as well!
Here is a direct link to view
the agenda and register for the meeting.
On September 1st two of our colleagues became Fellow of ACP.
Those awardees are Dr. David Hingle of Elko and
Dr. Omar Canaday of Reno. Congratulations to both
of you- well deserved.
One of the things that makes ACP most relevant and effective is
input from membership. Policy making in ACP is a bottom up process
with ideas for policy and practice improvement coming from
membership. Ideas and initiatives are formatted as Resolutions,
discussed by Chapter leadership and then sent on to be discussed,
modified and voted upon by the Board of Governors. All accepted
resolutions are moved forward for action by the Board of Regents. I
am linking the Resolutions
Guide. It would be great for ACP if they had a chance to hear
I also wanted to make all of you aware of current ACP offerings.
One of the most exciting is FREE access to DynaMed Plus. This is a
very valuable clinical management tool and a worthy competitor to
any other tool on the market.
The explosion of interest in and availability of telemedicine
services has created opportunities for improvements in care but has
also created a bit of uncertainty for primary care providers. I am
attaching to the ACP
Position Paper, just released, which I think is an invaluable
resource for all of us.
Finally, Chief residents who are also Resident/Fellow Members of
ACP are eligible to apply for a Herbert S. Waxman Clinical Skills
Center Teaching Scholarship. Under the guidance and mentorship of
expert faculty, Waxman Scholars teach workshops on various topics
including ultrasound-guided invasive procedures, arthrocentesis,
and incision and drainage of abscesses. The Herbert S. Waxman
Clinical Skills Center is part of ACP's annual Internal Medicine
Meeting, and provides hands-on, small-group learning opportunities
in the areas of communication, physical diagnosis, and hospital and
office-based procedural skills. The scholarship includes the cost
of meeting registration, travel, and accommodations for the
selected chief residents to attend the 2016 ACP Internal
Medicine Meeting from May 5-7, 2016, in Washington,
Applications will be accepted through Friday, October 9,
2015. For more information about the
scholarship or to apply.
Please remember that Internal Medicine 2016 will take place in
Washington, D.C from May 5-7, 2016. It is definitely the best time
of year in D.C. and it is sure to be a great meeting, both broad
I hope to see many of you at our Chapter meeting. Your presence
will make it great.
