Early Career Physician Chapter Leaders,
We are pleased to deliver the second edition of the Council of Early Career Physicians (CECP) newsletter for early career physician chapter leaders. With this newsletter, we hope to increase communication between the national CECP and ECP chapter leaders by highlighting CECP activities, promoting ACP activities and initiatives that may be of interest to early career physicians, and sharing best practices from various chapter ECP councils. If you missed our September newsletter, you can access it anytime on the ACP CECP webpage.
We have recently created a GroupMe for national CECP members and ECP chapter leaders to network; discuss best practices in managing your councils; and disseminate relevant ACP events, deadlines, and opportunities for early career physicians. You can sign up at https://groupme.com/join_group/83819489/5joBvCvd. Please note, the link is for ACP ECP chapter leaders only and should not be shared with anyone else because this is a closed group.
If you have any questions about a newsletter item or getting further involved in ACP, please e-mail us. If you have an idea, a request, or a wish to submit a story from your chapter for a future newsletter, please e-mail us.
