Welcome to our American College of Physicians Chapter's website.
ACP is the nation's largest medical specialty organization. Membership comprises more than 161,000 internal medicine physicians and medical students. Internists provide the majority of health care to adults in America. Our Chapter is one of the largest in the nation with over 5,400 members.
Both generalist and subspecialty internists make up our membership in the Ohio Chapter. Our intent is to speak for our specialty of Internal Medicine and our patients. If you are an internist in Ohio but are not yet an ACP member, we invite you to browse our site to learn more about the College and our Chapter activities.
We have several responsibilities as a chapter. Those at least include representing the voice and sentiment of our Chapter to the national ACP organization; encouraging internists in our state to become members and members to advance to Fellowship; recognizing and celebrating the accomplishments of our 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 Resident/Fellow members to participate in local and national College activities.
Our Chapter's website site has been developed to keep internists in Ohio and our membership up-to-date on developments and activities in our Chapter. Our at least quarterly newsletters, emails, and updates on this webpage to our membership are intended to provide details about upcoming activities.
We encourage and need you to participate in any of our chapter's activities that may be of interest to you.
We would like to hear any suggestions you have for how the Ohio Chapter of the ACP that might help make us better physicians and improve the quality of the professional lives and those of our patients. I would recommend that you contact either me directly or our Executive Director Jan Wrassman.
We hope that you will visit this site frequently and enjoy its contents.
Craig Nielsen, MD, FACP, ACP Governor, Ohio Chapter
