More than 5,000 internists (adult medicine specialists), subspecialists, medical students, and allied health professionals will meet in San Diego for Internal Medicine 2011, the annual scientific meeting of the American College of Physicians (ACP), April 7 - 9 (Thursday - Saturday), at the San Diego Convention Center.
ACP is the largest specialty organization devoted to adult medicine and is the second-largest physician group in the United States. Internists specialize in the prevention, detection, and treatment of illnesses in adults.
Internal Medicine 2011 features more than 260 scientific sessions taught by nationally recognized physicians.
At the Opening Ceremony on April 7 at 9:30 a.m., Richard Baron, MD, MACP, will deliver the keynote address, "Medicine as Practice." Bringing together a historical perspective with that of a 21st century patient-centered medical home, Dr. Baron will reflect on the continuities and changes in medical practice as an activity. A past chair of the American Board of Internal Medicine, Dr. Baron was named the 2010 "Practitioner of the Year" by the Philadelphia County Medical Society.
Convocation, which takes place on April 7 at 6:30 p.m., offers photo / video opportunities. More than 500 new Masters, Fellows, awardees, and dignitaries will process in full academic regalia.
