If I am given the privilege of serving as Governor for the ACP Quebec chapter, I will work hard to enhance the visibility of the ACP in our province. One of my objectives will be to increase the ACP membership so that a bigger number of Quebec internists, both anglophone and francophone, become active participants in ACP activities. I will also strive to increase participation by medical students, residents, and fellows. Serving as the president of the ASMIQ continuous professional development committee and being an active member of the CSIM will allow me to build bridges between the ACP and our local medical education organizations. It is critical that internal medicine speak with a united voice as we enter an exceptionally exciting era of our specialty in Canada. We must continue strengthening the brand name of general internal medicine in this context. Our goal should be to have the general public and all relevant political and regulatory bodies understand unequivocally that internists are a very distinguished group of highly-trained experts who should be the providers of choice for most adults.
