Thank you to all of the fellows, residents and medical students who submitted abstracts this year. We appreciate that you chose to contribute your work and submit for this competition. We received so many excellent abstracts this year, which made it very difficult for our abstract review committee to make their selections. We expect the quality of this competition to be exemplary. The Chapter’s Executive Director has already contacted all of the presenters listed above and have instructed them on how to prepare for their presentations.
We look forward to seeing everyone at the meeting in January. Please watch for details to be sent soon.
(December 2021) A summary of Board of Regents (BOR) actions on resolutions debated at the Fall 2021 Board of Governors (BOG) virtual meeting is now available. Resolutions initiated by ACP members and endorsed by a chapter council and the BOG become ACP policy when adopted by the BOR.
If you have an idea you'd like to suggest to ACP, consider submitting a resolution to our chapter.

(December 2021) Congratulations to the West Virginia Chapter's newest Fellow. Fellowship in the College is an honor. Being an FACP® is a distinction earned from colleagues who recognize your accomplishments and achievements over and above the practice of medicine. The most important considerations for ACP Fellowship are excellence and contributions made to both medicine and to the broader community in which the internist lives and practices.
(October 8, 2021)-Congratulations to Asif Rahman, MD, FACP on achieving the Outstanding Volunteer Clinical Teacher Award national award
Join me in congratulating Dr. Raham on this tremendous accomplishment.
(October 8, 2021)-Congratulations to Karen E. Clark, MD, MACP, the newest West Virginia Chapter Mastership of the American College of Physicians (MACP). MACP is one of the most prestigious awards in the college, for those fellows of the college who demonstrate integrity, the utmost professional behaviors, excellence in the practice of medicine, and significant impact on the profession. MACPs represent a very small percentage of college membership.
Join me in congratulating Dr. Clark on this tremendous accomplishment.
