This is an exciting time for medicine and for internal medicine.
Many of the areas that we touch daily are in a state of evolution.
Most importantly are the changes that will come with health care
reform. The ability to offer health coverage to millions of
Americans who currently live without coverage may be a significant
change agent as medicine evolves focusing on the patient-centered,
cost effective, high quality/high value care. This care requires a
vibrant, well-trained, and valued primary care physician workforce
and I believe that general internal medicine is well situated to
lead this endeavor. Over the next few years we have the ability to
chart the future for internal medicine training and for careers in
internal medicine, both primary care and subspecialty. I believe
our strength lies in our commitment to patient centered care, our
commitment to be mentors for the next generation of physicians and
our ability to practice evidence-based medicine.
