ACP begins year-long centennial celebration
Philadelphia, January 27, 2015 -- When Dr. Heinrich Stern and
colleagues founded the American College of
Physicians (ACP) in 1915, the objectives and purpose included
to "promote the advancement of the science and practice of
medicine" and "to further the study and knowledge of biological
medicine among its members."
This year, ACP celebrates a century of internal medicine
leadership, innovation, and excellence in medical knowledge and
information as the largest medical specialty organization and the
second-largest physician group in the United States, home to
141,000 internal medicine physician members with 68 U.S. chapters
and 16 international chapters.
"In 2015, we are celebrating not just 100 years of ACP but also
a century of internal medicine innovation," said Dr. David Fleming,
president, ACP. "ACP is proud to have continued to evolve over the
years to support and meet the changing needs of our internal
medicine physician members, who are diverse in professional focus,
but unified by a commitment to excellence."
In recognition of its 100th anniversary, ACP developed an
online timeline featuring
historical facts, images, and anecdotes about the organization in a
decade-by-decade format. The organization also will publish a
commemorative history book, To Serve Our Patients and
Profession: A Centennial History of the American College of
A series of events and activities throughout the year will
celebrate ACP's values of excellence, compassion, and dedication to
patients that have remained constant throughout the organization's
first century and will continue to shape its future.
Each issue of ACP
Internist will feature an article focusing on each decade
of ACP's history. Annals of
Internal Medicine will include a historical article in
each issue that corresponds to a current topic in the journal,
several History of Medicine articles, and photographs of internal
medicine physicians on the cover. The Jan. 27 issue of Annals
features an editorial
by Dr. Steven Weinberger, ACP's CEO and Executive Vice President,
about the challenges facing internal medicine as ACP enters its
ACP's 2015 Internal Medicine Meeting from April 30 through May
2 in Boston will feature an art exhibit and several special
sessions, including "Defining Internal Medicine: The History of
ACP"," History of Politics in American Medicine," "The History of
Annals of Internal Medicine and the Future of Medical
Journals," and "Award-Winning Innovations in High Value Care."
William Osler (1849-1919), recognized by many as the "Father of
Modern Medicine," emphasized the importance of physicians uniting
in a professional community:
"You cannot afford to stand aloof from your professional
colleagues in any place. Join their associations, mingle in their
meetings, giving of the best of your talents, gathering here,
scattering there; but everywhere showing that you are at all times
faithful students, as willing to teach as to be taught."
"Looking forward, ACP will continue to evolve and advance the
science and practice of medicine and will continue to support its
diverse membership united by the core values of respect,
compassion, professionalism, and responsibility," said Dr. Robert
Centor, chair, ACP Board of Regents.
