Internists--doctors for adults--have joined the Nevada Chapter to speak for Internal Medicine and to reflect the interests and concerns of our specialty. If you are a board certified internist in Nevada but are not yet an ACP member, I invite you to browse our site to learn more about the College, our activities in the state, and to become a member.
The Nevada Chapter is growing with over 761 internists, including over 246 residents and medical students. We have 515 physician members (not in training). We represent 25 % of the general internists and 35 % of the internal medicine subspecialists in Nevada. Our chapter has a rich history of supporting the goal of the ACP to promote better patient care by educating and informing policy makers, patients, and fellow physicians.
As Governor, I have the responsibility of representing our Chapter to the national organization; encouraging internists in our state to become members and members to advance to Fellowship; recognizing members; encouraging input and action on national, state, and local political issues affecting 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, state, regional, and national College activities.
My hope is that this site makes it easy for physicians in our state to learn about and participate in the activities of our chapter.
If you have ideas for useful information we could include at this site or more importantly--how the Chapter can enhance your professional life--I would like to hear from you.
For information about the Nevada Chapter or any chapter activity, please contact me at 702-458-2362 or e-mail.
