(Washington) Almost 350 physicians, residents,
fellows-in-training, and medical students gathered today to be
briefed on the healthcare issues facing the country and priorities
of the American College of Physicians (ACP). They came from just

"I know that you believe, like me that being a good physician
requires more than knowing differentials and treatments," David A.
Fleming, MD, MA, FACP, president of ACP, told the audience in his
welcoming remarks. "It is also important to be an advocate for
policies and practices that will influence the welfare of our
patients and the health of our society. We advocate for policies
that benefit our patients in accordance with the highest standards
of care in practice and our profession."
The internists and aspiring-internists will learn from ACP
staff, members of Congress, congressional staff, and independent
policy analysts. Then, on Thursday, they will visit their members

to be a practicing physician, learner, leader, or trainee in
today's challenging health care environment."
Dr. Fleming concluded his remarks by reminding the audience
that: "in the end, your expertise is in the practice of medicine
and how policies may impact the care of patients and the
professional lives of those who care for them. When advocating
emphasize your personal experiences and local observations-it is
the anecdote that tend to be remembered, not the data or the
research. Tell your stories about real patients, their concerns,
and your concerns for them. Legislators also want to hear about
ways to contain cost, so it is important to mention that ACP
physicians are also interested in cost-conscious care that provides
The American College of Physicians is the
largest medical specialty organization and the second-largest

who apply scientific knowledge and clinical expertise to the
