Hello fellow Army Internists! I hope your summer is going well.
For those of you who are graduating from residency,
congratulations! Enjoy your time before you start work. For those
of you separating or retiring, best of luck and you are always
welcome in the Army ACP Chapter family. Safe travels for those
PCSing. For those you are staying put, we all know the summer
"underlap" is challenging. Keep the faith, the replacements arrive
soon! Lastly, but most importantly, for those that are deployed,
stay safe and thanks for your tireless service.
Mark your calendars! Our next chapter meeting will be Friday, 5
Dec 14. It will be a virtual (online) meeting, starting at 1300 EST
and lasting approximately four hours. Unfortunately, the current
DoD travel restrictions make it too difficult to have robust
attendance for an in-person meeting, hence the virtual meeting. The
format will be similar to last year, with a CME lecture, resident
presentations, award presentations, and finally, the Doctor's
Thanks to all of those who helped make the 1st ever virtual Army
Chapter ACP meeting a success. We were treated with a lecture,
"Interesting Topics in Global Tuberculosis", by COL(ret) Matthew J.
Dolan, MD, MACP and an update on Army General Medicine by COL
Jeanne Tofferi, MD, MPH, FACP. Four residents then presented their
research, followed by the awards presentation (see below), which
was chaired by LTC Ramey Wilson, MD FACP. Finally, through
incredible tenacity and a "Never Quit!" attitude, COL William
Kelly, MD, FACP, organized an outstanding Doctor's Dilemma
Please join me in congratulating the following internists:

Resident Research Competition:
2LT Elizabeth Marx, USU School of Medicine class of 2014, won
first prize for overall best clinical research poster at the
national meeting of the American College of Physicians (ACP)
Medical Student Clinical Research Competition. One of the WRNMMC's
pulmonary fellows, CPT David Hostler, MD, helped Liz with the
project and accompanied her to the meeting. The project,
"Validation of the IMPROVE Bleeding Risk score for medical
inpatients", was mentored by WRNNMC's LTC Aaron Holley, MD
Our Chapter won a John Tooker Evergreen Award! The ACP
establishes awards for chapters for particularly outstanding
efforts. Our chapter, together with the Navy and Air Force ACP
chapters, won a John Tooker Evergreen Award for collaboration for
our 2012 Tri-service Chapter Meeting. While the work of many, many
ACP members was needed to make that meeting a success, I would like
to recognize the meeting planners, LTC Christopher Letttieri, MD,
and LCDR Lynn A. Byars, MD FACP, as well as COL(Ret.) Lisa Zacher,
MD FACP, for their outstanding leadership.
ACP has a new logo and tagline! "Leading
Internal Medicine, Improving Lives". Please see the full story

Have you tried ACP's SmartMedicine? It's
a great point of care reference. Give it a try the next time you
have a question in clinic. I use it regularly. In fact, I just now
claimed 1 hour of CME, as I had used SmartMedicine for clinical
questions ADHD and carpal tunnel syndrome this month. And it's FREE
as part of your ACP benefit.
Sometimes the ACP asks our members for interviews, which I would
strongly encourage you to do if asked. Make sure you get clearance
from your public affairs office in advance, as the subject of this
interview did: (fair warning--you're probably sick of hearing about
this individual. Particularly if you work at Walter Reed)
See you (virtually) in December!
