CANDIDATE STATEMENT: Thank you for the opportunity to be
considered for Wyoming ACP Governor. I currently serve on the
Wyoming WWAMI medical school admissions committee, and as ACP
Governor I would work with the UW College of Health Sciences
faculty to increase exposure of Wyoming medical students to
internal medicine early in their careers. Also, in addition to the
Wyoming ACP Chapter being active at the WMS Annual Meeting I would
additionally like to have the ACP participate in the Frontiers in
Wyoming Medicine meeting that is sponsored by Wyoming Medical
Center at Snow King each February. I've been a speaker at the
Frontiers meeting for the past two years and also generally attend
the WMS meeting, and it would be good to have the ACP present at
both meetings. Finally, as Wyoming ACP Governor I would like to
revisit the possibility of starting an IM residency program in

AREAS OF PROFESSIONAL INTEREST/EXPERTISE: 1. Patient safety 2.
Office practice efficiency and access 3. Redesigning healthcare
CANDIDATE STATEMENT: I have been actively involved in the ACP at
a state and national level since moving to Wyoming in 2002. My
teaching experience at the ACP state and national meetings and
membership on the AAP Section on Internal Medicine and Pediatrics,
a collaboration between the AAP and the ACP, have provided valuable
insight into the structure and function of the ACP. My interest and
experiences in patient safety and healthcare redesign would be
congruent with the direction of the ACP and potentially useful to
the Board of Governors. Medical education and the practice of
medicine are much different now than when I moved to Wyoming in
2002. The joy of helping patients has not changed, but the amount
of bureaucratic distraction is escalating. I would welcome the
possibility to represent the interests of internal medicine, both
primary care and specialists alike, on the Board of Governors of
