I hope this note finds you well and enjoying the tail end of summer! I am writing from Gallup, but am starting to prepare for the fall Board of Governors meeting in Chicago in mid September, and also for our Annual Scientific Meeting in November. I'm looking forward to both greatly. At the Chicago Board of Governor's meeting, we'll be discussing resolutions (ideas from the chapters that help the Governors advise the Board of Regents) as well as how to help members increase their practice enjoyment.
Maintenance of Certification (MOC), Meaningful Use, climate change, and prescription drug pricing are hot topics now. I truly value your opinions on these and other issues germane to medicine. Please review the resolutions we'll be discussing at the Board of Governors meeting, and complete the survey monkey to let me know where you stand:
With so much change in medicine, there is also a lot of talk about high levels of dissatisfaction. I'm honored to be participating in the College's upcoming summit on increasing practice enjoyment, and would like to bring your experiences with me to guide these discussions. Please take a moment to complete this very short survey about what contributes to your satisfaction in practice and what detracts from it.
Although there is a lot of change afoot, there remain so many inspiring physicians in our Chapter. I'm pleased there were such strong candidates for our Chapter awards this year, and excited that at this year's Annual Scientific Meeting we will be recognizing Allen Adolphe, MD, PhD, FACP as Chapter Laureate, Kendall Rogers, MD, FACP, SFHM for Excellence in Teaching, and Maricruz Merino, MD, FACP, for Community Service and Volunteerism. Please join me in congratulating them and thanking them to their service to their colleagues, their patients, and to internal medicine in New Mexico at our Business Meeting on November 7th.
Speaking of awards, this year we will present the inaugural NM ACP Medical Student Award. First through fourth year medical students are eligible. Nominations may be submitted by peers, resident physicians, faculty advisors, or physician mentors and should Pleasebe submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org by September 24, 2014. More information is available on our chapter website.
As always, I'm grateful for the dedication and thoughtfulness of our Councilors. Although I individually accepted the 2014 Chapter Excellence Award, I was doing so on their behalf. Please join me in thanking them. You may find our list of Councilors and Officers. I can't help but reflect on the successes of our council while considering that I'll be completing my four-year term as Governor in April 2016. Rush Pierce, MD, MPH, FACP, Tobore Kokoricha, MD, FACP, and Ellen Yee, MD, FACP, did a great job on our nominations committee, and I'm so pleased that we have two outstanding candidates to succeed me: Betty Chang, MDCM, PhD, FACP, and Keshab Paudel, MD, MBA, FHM, FACP. The voting membership (Masters, Fellows, Members, and Resident/Fellow Members with an elect date of 8/1/2012 or earlier) can vote via online (www.directvote.net/ACP/) or mail-in ballot. Check out the Chapter's Web site for full details on the candidates' bios and candidates' statements.
In closing, thank you again for your commitment to your practices, your patients, your colleagues, and to internal medicine. Please keep in touch.

The ACP has released ACP Smart Medicine, a web-based clinical decision support tool developed specifically for internists containing 500 modules that provide guidance and information on a broad range of diseases and conditions.
Integrated with content from Annals of Internal Medicine, ACP JournalWise, and ACP's clinical practice guidelines with a display that automatically adjusts to desktops, smartphones, and tablets, the clinical recommendations in ACP Smart Medicine are evidence-based and rated based on the quality of the underlying evidence. Information is continually updated through triggered updates with new, relevant content and guidelines - including new sections on Ebola and Marburg virus. Additionally, ACP High Value Care recommendations identify care activities that offer little benefit to patients.
ACP Smart Medicine also offers easy access to submit for CME credit. Physicians can select modules from the list of content areas they have reviewed, answer a question, and submit for CME credit.
ACP Smart Medicine is available as a free benefit to ACP members and can be purchased by non-members.
