Governor's Report

Dr. Embil

This newsletter summarizes the past two years of activity in the Manitoba/Saskatchewan Chapter of the American College of Physicians. Much activity has surrounded promoting the specialty of Internal Medicine amongst the medical students. The number of medical student members has increased as has membership amongst residents in Internal Medicine.

The Local Chapter of the American College of Physicians has partnered with the medical students Internal Medicine Interest Group to host a number of very well attended venues, specifically, “Meet the Professor” where specialists in Internal Medicine and its subspecialists have provided insights into their career choices, activities within their career, and how they have been able to always maintain Internal Medicine as a focal point of their clinical activities. In addition, a “Speed Dating an Internist” evening has always been supported by the Local Chapter of the ACP. This very well attended event has provided undergraduate medical students insights into the activities of specialists in Internal Medicine and their subspecialties.

The American College of Physicians has partnered with the Bug Day Planning Committee to co-host “Bug Day”. This is Manitoba’s largest continuing healthcare education event attracting approximately 1200 people on site at the University of Manitoba, or by means of telehealth transmission. Once again, the topics that were presented were of a broad scope focussing on infectious diseases, infection prevention and control, and public health.

For the upcoming year, the Chapter plans to continue hosting events to stimulate interest in Internal Medicine amongst the undergraduate medical students.
