ws from ACP Members Who Have Changed Health Care by Serving in the Federal Government. The panel will offer insights from internists who are or were leaders in the federal government on how federal health policies are made and how current key health policy issues impacts patient care.

A former presidential physician and head of the White House Medical Unit, a medical historian, a former CIA physician who carried out profiling of national leaders and their mental and emotional health, and the chairman of the committee on disability in U.S. presidents are participating in two medical history panel discussions. History of Medicine: Illness in National Leaders on Thursday, May 15, at 2:15 p.m. in room 146 B analyzes the duties, responsibilities, and challenges of the president's physician. The panel will discuss presidential incapacity and the case of Woodrow Wilson. Taking care of presidents, kings, rock stars, and presidential candidates is the focus of History of Medicine: Illness in U.S. Presidents on Friday, May 16, at 11:15 a.m. in room 206.

The Herbert S. Waxman Clinical Skills Center offers hands-on activities and clinical demonstrations focusing on communication, physical examination, and procedural skills. In a new workshop this year, internists will evaluate live comatose patients -- trained standardized patients who, in many cases, will have real physical findings that can aid the diagnosis. Neurologists will offer feedback to the internists on how they managed the case.

The annual Convocation ceremony on Thursday evening recognizes new Fellows, Honorary Fellows, Masters, and award recipients. Through its awards, ACP recognizes accomplishments in medical practice, teaching, research, volunteer service, preventive medicine, and other areas.
