Welcome to the West Virginia Chapter of the American College of Physicians Web page! West Virginia’s internists - doctors for adults - are joined in the ACP WV Chapter to speak for Internal Medicine and to reflect the interests and concerns of our specialty. If you are an internist in West Virginia but are not yet an ACP member, I invite you to make us your professional home. Browse our site to learn more about the chapter, the College, and the more than 141,000 internal medicine physicians and medical students it represents.
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; and encouraging input and action on national political issues. I am also responsible for recognizing members; encouraging medical student members and Associates (i.e., residents) to participate in local and national College activities; and hosting local scientific meetings and CME events. Our chapter has a history of successful student and Associate representation at the national level, for which we can all take pride. I will be glad to communicate with any of you regarding your questions or concerns about the College, its programs and positions. I am proud to represent the WV Chapter and always enjoy the opportunity to meet the talented and dedicated internists in our state.
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. I encourage you to be an active member! If you have ideas for information we should include on this website, suggestions for how we can make an impact in the health of our state, or thoughts on how the Chapter can enhance your professional life, I would like to hear from you!
Please join me in supporting the efforts of ACP to revitalize the profession of Internal Medicine!
