From the Governor

Governor’s Welcome

Dear Colleagues,
Greetings! And welcome to the ACP Oregon Chapter website!

The American College of Physicians, founded in 1915, is the nation’s largest medical specialty organization. Membership comprises 161,000 internal medicine physicians, trainees, and medical students around the country and around the world.

Internal medicine physicians – doctors for adults – are joined by ACP in a professional family which speaks for Internal Medicine, reflecting the interests and concerns of our specialty. If you are an Internal medicine physician in Oregon, but are not yet an ACP member, I invite you to browse the Oregon Chapter’s site to learn more about the College and our activities.

The Oregon Chapter is growing with over 1,848 members. Our Chapter has a rich history of supporting the goals of the ACP to promote better patient care by providing education and a professional community, and by informing policy makers, patients, and fellow physicians about issues affecting the environment of healthcare.

My hope is that this site makes it easy for you to learn about and participate in the activities of our Oregon Chapter. I encourage you to be an active member of our Chapter.

As Governor of the Oregon Chapter, I have the responsibility of representing our Chapter to the national organization; encouraging internists in our state to become members and members to advance to Fellowship; recognizing members; encouraging input and action on national and local political issues affecting the environment of internal medicine; hosting local scientific meetings and CME events; and encouraging medical student members and Resident/Fellows to participate in local and national College activities.

I am proud to represent the Oregon Chapter and always enjoy the opportunity of meeting the talented and dedicated internists in our state.

This site represents our link to internists in Oregon and the nation and will keep you updated on our activities. Check the site for names and addresses so that you can contact me, other Chapter leaders, and fellow chapter members as the need arises.

If you have ideas for useful information we could include on this site or more importantly – how the Chapter can enhance your professional life – I would like to hear from you. Send me an e-mail at jennysilberger@gmail.com or contact  our Executive Director at 866.460.5880; office@oregonacp.org

I look forward to seeing you at an upcoming event, at the Chapter’s Annual Scientific Meeting in the Fall, or at the national Internal Medicine Meeting.

Jenny Silberger MD, FACP
Governor, ACP Oregon Chapter
