Welcome from the Pennsylvania Chapter Governors
ACP is the nation's largest medical specialty organization. ACP, founded in 1915, and ASIM, founded in 1956 merged in July of 1998. Membership comprises 143,000 internal medicine physicians and medical students. Internists provide the majority of health care to adults in America.
Internists (doctors for adults) in our region are joined in the three Pennsylvania Regions, to speak for Internal Medicine in our state and to reflect the interests and concerns of our specialty. If you are an internist in Pennsylvania but are not yet an ACP member, we invite you to browse our site to learn more about the College and the Regional activities in our area.
As Governors, we have the responsibility of representing our Regions 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 and local political issues effecting the environment of internal medicine; hosting local scientific meetings and CME events; and encouraging medical student members and Resident/Fellow Members to participate in local and national College activities.
This site has been developed to keep internists in Pennsylvania and our membership up to date on developments and activities in our Chapter. Our newsletters and details about upcoming regional meetings will be posted here along with names and addresses so that you can communicate with us.
Any suggestions you might have for what should be included in our Web site are encouraged. Similarly, we would like to hear any suggestions you have for how the Pennsylvania Regions of ACP might help make us better physicians and improve the quality of the professional life of internists.
We hope that you will visit this site frequently and enjoy its contents.
