Two celebrations for MKSAP: new editor, 30th anniversary

From the September 1997 ACP Observer, copyright © 1997 by the American College of Physicians.

Ronald A. Arky, MACP, professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School, has been appointed Editor-in-Chief of MKSAP 12, the College's major medical knowledge self-assessment program. Dr. Arky's nomination for the part-time, non-salaried position was approved by the Board of Regents at its July meeting.

Dr. Arky, who is the Charles S. Davidson Professor of Medicine and Master of the Francis Weld Peabody Academic Society at Harvard Medical School, has had a distinguished career spanning the full spectrum of medical education. A graduate of Cornell University and Cornell Medical College, he joined Harvard Medical School in 1961 as a research fellow in medicine at Boston City Hospital. For 22 years he worked as chairman of the department of medicine at Mount Auburn Hospital. He was named a Master of ACP in 1995 for his contributions as a clinician and educator.

MKSAP's newest editor is well known as a leader in undergraduate, graduate and continuing medical education. Dr. Arky is also considered an expert in education, curriculum and the association of medical education to modern day technology. ACP's Herbert S. Waxman, FACP, Senior Vice President for Education, said that MKSAP 12 is at a "boundary of an old and new world. Dr. Arky bridges these worlds by carrying out traditions while remaining committed to innovative approaches." MKSAP 12 is expected to be released in the fall of the year 2000.

In other MKSAP news, the College's self-assessment series is celebrating its 30th anniversary this fall. The latest version, MKSAP 11, which is expected to be published in October, will feature increased emphasis on the common problems that internists face as well as significant design changes to enhance its usefulness.
