Updates in Internal Medicine

Join your colleagues in internal medicine at the next scientific meeting of the Missouri Chapter of the American College of Physicians, being held across 5 days in October. The meeting is a great way for you to recharge, rewind, and reflect with your peers, chapter leaders, and great speakers. Connect virtually with the Missouri Chapter's rich source of knowledge content.

The Missouri ACP Conference will be held across multiple days in order to provide you with a variety of education. There will be a total of 5 sessions available and if you are unable to attend one of the live sessions, the sessions will be posted to a conference website for you to watch at a later date. We are unable to provide single day sessions for purchase. The entire conference will need to be purchased in order to participate. For additional questions, please contact and we will be happy to assist you.

Due to rapidly escalating health concerns related to the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus), our chapter has come to the difficult decision to move to virtual for the 2020 meeting. In the spirit of our chapter values to “adapt and overcome,” we have decided to move to a virtual event.

How do I find and access which sessions will be virtual?

Sessions will be marked with a "Join Virtual Session" button in the virtual meeting hub. Only registered attendees who are logged in will be able to access these links. If you have any difficulty accessing your ACP account, you can reset your username and password. You can do so by clicking on the MyACP link at the top of the ACP web site. Nonmembers are advised to use their e-mail address as their username when creating a password. If you require additional assistance, please contact us (M-F, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET) via web chat or call 800-ACP-1915 or 215-351-2600 or via e-mail at

Will attendees be able to ask questions or participate in the session, or is the session just going to consist of streamed presentations?

We are aiming to make options available that include attendee interaction options like a live chat window and/or polling. We would like for sessions to be interactive when possible and desired.

Will sessions be recorded and archived for later consumption?

With the exception of October 29th, the meeting will be recorded and available for one year from the meeting date.

For other questions about the virtual meeting, contact Sarah Luebbert at 573-636-5151 or
