Atlantic Provinces Chapter
As Governor for the Atlantic Provinces, I welcome you to the Atlantic Provinces Chapter web site. My hope is that this site makes it easy for physicians in our area to learn about and participate in the activities of our Chapter. It also provides information so that you can contact me, other chapter leaders, and fellow chapter members as the need arises.
The Atlantic Provinces Chapter is growing with over 300 members. Our Chapter has a rich history of supporting the goal of ACP to promote better patient care by educating and informing patients and fellow physicians. I encourage you to be an active member of our Chapter. If you are an internist in the Atlantic Provinces but are not yet an ACP member, I invite you to browse our site to learn more about the College and our activities in the province.
As Governor, I have the responsibility of representing the Atlantic Provinces to the national organization; encouraging internists in our province to become members and members to advance to Fellowship; recognizing members; encouraging input and action on national and local political issues effecting the environment of internal medicine; hosting local scientific meetings and CME events; and encouraging medical student members and Associates (i.e., residents) to participate in local and national College activities.
I am proud to represent the Atlantic Provinces and always enjoy the opportunity of meeting the talented and dedicated internists in our province.
If you have ideas for useful information we could include at this site or more importantly, how the Atlantic Provinces Chapter can enhance your professional life, I would like to hear from you. Send me e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
