Career and Professional Development Initiatives

One of ACP’s core goals is to foster the career and professional development of internal medicine physicians to maximize their potential at all career stages. ACP has developed several pilot programs anticipating the changing career needs of IM physicians.  This proactive approach, with your financial support, allows us to launch programs responsive to the changing healthcare opportunities.

Global Physician Scholar (GPS) Program

ACP's Global Physician Scholar (GPS) Program provides short-term study and mentorship experiences in the United States and Canada for international early/mid career physicians, expanding the potential for more global exchange in medicine. Scholars are hosted for a month by senior faculty in academic medical institutions in the United States and Canada. They also participate in ACP’s Internal Medicine Meeting (complimentary registration and expenses included in stipend) to benefit from education courses, professional development, and knowledge sharing. The overall goal of the program is to enable scholars to share perspectives and expand access to knowledge and skills to improve global delivery of care. Four Global Physician Scholars were selected in 2023.
