For medical students, now is a prime opportunity to become involved in advocacy. The decisions made now will directly impact us in our careers as physicians, and your input merits consideration.
Growing up, Dr. Barry J. Wu was first inspired to become a physician by looking at the plaques in his eye doctor's office. Dr. William C. Caccamise was involved in several medical missions and the various plaques on his office walls inspired Dr. Wu's future decision to pursue medicine. They also inspired him to participate in medical mission trips. Dr. Caccamise showed that being a doctor was a not a job but a calling to educate and serve others. Dr. Wu's decision to follow his doctor's dedication to serve others has led him on many adventures across the globe, including medical mission trips to the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, and Panama.

ACP's continued success on Capitol Hill greatly depends upon year-round grassroots support from the College's more than 7,000 Key Contacts. Key Contacts e-mail, call and meet with their members of Congress on issues of importance to medical students, internists and their patients, and report the results back to ACP.
To enroll as a Key Contact, ACP members are not required to have existing relationships with their members of Congress. ACP gives them the tools necessary to develop and maintain relationships. The program is open to all membership categories.

In the Clinic is a monthly feature in Annals of Internal Medicine that focuses on practical management of patients with common clinical conditions. It offers evidence-based answers to frequently asked questions about screening, prevention, diagnosis, therapy, and patient education and provides physicians with tools to improve the quality of care.
