ACP launches operations in India
The American College of Physicians recently announced plans to initiate educational programs in India starting in 2013.
Phyllis A. Guze, MD, FACP, Chair of ACP’s Board of Regents, and Jim Ott, ACP’s Senior Vice President of International Programs, visited New Delhi in December 2012 to participate in ACP India’s launch. ACP India will organize guest lectures, training workshops and conferences with international speakers to promote exchange of knowledge and best practices.

“ACP is known for providing tools and educational resources for physicians to deliver high-value, cost-effective care to their patients,” said Dr. Guze. “In India, we will be no different.”
Mr. Ott told attendees at the launch event that “ACP’s goal is to establish a chapter in India directed by local internal medicine leaders, which will lead to regular scientific meetings, educational programs, leadership development, networking and participating in the governance of ACP.”
