Early Career Physicians

NYACP represents over 1200 Early Career Physicians (defined as within 16 years of completing medical school).  Your membership gives you access to career counseling, networking, education, advocacy and communication resources to assist you with your career in Internal Medicine.

NYACP's Early Career Physician Chair: Chris Elsayad, MD, FACP

On behalf of the Early Career Physician Task Force, welcome to the newest resource offered to our members who are navigating their way into practice.  This page should be used to answer questions, offer insights and hopefully mitigate the confusion that faces physicians of today. We will be offering webinars, sharing employment opportunities and highlighting an Early Career Physician Task Force member bimonthly. In addition, due to the increased need for communication with our patients in different languages, we will be featuring an area with commonly used phrases in Spanish.

We welcome any suggestions you may have and look forward to your use of this page as a resource and place of engagement with your peers.

ACP' Travel Grants Program

The program will provide travel support of $2,000 for up to 20 domestic early career Members and Fellows of the College to attend the ACP Internal Medicine Meeting 2017. Although the grants will be available to all early career full members of the College, special consideration will be given to first-time attendees, physicians who serve rural or under-served populations, physicians of diverse backgrounds, and those without a significant source for CME funding.

Introducing the ACP's Early Career E-Poster Competition

The ACP has announced an Early Career E-Poster Competition, taking place on Thursday, March 30, during ACP's Internal Medicine 2017 in San Diego. The ACP defines early career physicians as members who are <16 years since medical school graduation. The E-Poster competition will be online only with no onsite judging. There will be a limit of 100 submissions, with 50 selected to develop an online poster. In addition to the online poster with the authors able to include voice-over narration to the poster so that viewers may hear from them what makes the findings significant, original and relevant. The E-poster portal will open in Early October. For more information or questions prior to the portal going live please contact Tracey Henry or at (800) 523-1546, ext. 2727.
