Governor's Welcome

Happy Fall Everyone!

I hope this message finds you well! It was great to see those in attendance at the national ACP meeting in San Diego in April! Congratulations to all our poster presenters and our Doctor's Dilemma team who made it to the semi-finals! The meeting marked the beginning of my term as your Chapter governor. It's an honor to represent our Navy Chapter. Please join me in extending a huge thanks to CAPT Mark Tschanz for his leadership and advocacy over the past four years!

Celebrate Internal Medicine Day on October 28th

Join ACP in celebrating Internal Medicine Day on Saturday, October 28 in recognition of the essential role of internal medicine physicians around the world.

As internal medicine physicians, we are experts in complexity who serve and lead in many diverse roles and settings. We're critical thinkers who excel in the most challenging and dynamic environments and provide compassionate care for our patients throughout their health care journey. We are the cornerstone of clinical care—vital to patients, medical professionals, and the health care system.

Join us and show your pride in internal medicine:

  • On social media - share or customize ACP's social media posts. Use the hashtags #InternalMedicineDay, #IMProud, and #IMPhysician. Recognize a colleague, thank a mentor, or tell your story.
  • Use the I.M. Physician Toolkit for downloadable posters, email signatures, slide presentations, and more, plus an opportunity to tell us why you love being an internal medicine physician.
  • Mark your calendar for a #IMDayChat X (formerly known as Twitter) chat on Thursday, October 26 at 8:00 p.m. ET, co-hosted by ACP's Council of Early Career Physicians, Council of Resident/Fellow Members, and Council of Student Members.
