SAN DIEGO—Before Annual Session, ACP's Board of Governors passed seven resolutions asking the College to do the following:

  • support prohibitions against using, stockpiling, producing and transferring anti-personnel land mines and support the destruction of such weapons;
  • help facilitate volunteer opportunities for internists in underserved areas;
  • identify and promote appropriate sources of training and certification in quality assurance and utilization management;
  • study the role of hospitalists;
  • recommend that HCFA allow on-site attending physicians in primary care clinics to provide both direct and supervised-resident patient care during a clinic session without being disqualified from the HCFA primary care exemption rule;
  • facilitate the granting of CME credits through College Web sites; and
  • establish a process for ongoing evaluation of the structure and function of the Board of Governors.

The resolutions have been referred to the Board of Regents for further discussion and potential action.
