Medical Student Perspectives: Welcome from the Chair of the Council of Student Members

Greetings!

The ACP recognizes that the future of internal medicine lies in the strength of its student members.


My Kind of Medicine: Real Lives of Practicing Internists: Brian Hertz, MD

Family at its best is a haven—a place where we come from, a place we will always belong, and a place to which we can always return. For Dr. Brian Hertz, family means all of those things, but so much more. It meant practicing patient care before he even knew what it was, at the age of 14 when his little brother Kevin suffered from spinal bifida.


Internal Medicine Interest Group of the Month: University of Kentucky

The Internal Medicine Interest Group (IMIG) at the University of Kentucky is a vibrant, growing organization within the College of Medicine that continues to be a favorite among students and faculty alike.

Lead poisoning causes significant morbidity in children and adults in the United States. Healthcare professionals must recognize its clinical presentations and identify potential sources of lead exposure.


Subspecialty Careers: Highlights about Careers in Internal Medicine: Critical Care Medicine

Critical care medicine encompasses the diagnosis and treatment of a wide variety of clinical problems representing the extreme of human disease. Critically ill patients require intensive care by a coordinated team. The critical care specialist (intensivist) may be the primary provider of care or a consultant.


Advocacy Briefs: ACP Endorses High-Need Physician Workforce Act

The American College of Physicians recently endorsed the bipartisan High-Need Physician Workforce Incentives Act of 2007. The six-part bill introduced on June 6 by Representative Michael C. Burgess, MD, and Representative Henry Cuellar of Texas focuses on incentives for generalist physicians (family practice, internal medicine, pediatrics, emergency medicine, general surgery, and OB/GYN) to work in high-need areas.
