NYACP Meeting and Event Highlights

The New York Chapter ACP continues to offer value through multiple educational outlets to our member physicians, residents and medical students. Below is a snapshot of our activities and events just within the past year...one of our core missions is to promote and conduct research to enhance the quality of practice, the education and continuing education of internists, and the attractiveness of internal medicine to physicians and to the public.

By providing high quality, industry specific education programs, we continue to promote ACP and also, provide regional and statewide educational conferences, district events and online training. Check out the many educational opportunities we offered our members:

  • Online Training:  When NY State mandated all physicians to be trained on Managing Pain and Opioid Use within 1 year of receipt of your license and every 3 years thereafter, the Chapter worked in conjunction with Boston University to provide a convenient, free 3 hour online course to meet this requirement: Managing Pain and Opioid Use: An Educational Program on Compliance with NYS Prescribing Laws - over 68,000 physicians have taken the course - for more information: Scope of Pain. New Module coming in 2020 to update your license!
  • NYACP Scientific Meeting - held once a year, this showcase event attracts over 350 member physicians, residents and medical students for a day of learning and networking. This program is designed by the Chapter's Education committee to develop a curriculum that engages members in current health issues and "hot topics" and we invite the most esteemed faculty! Our Resident and Medical Student members proudly display their posters for a chance to compete in the national ACP Competition. In 2018,  we will also be offering a pre-course MOC session on Friday, Octoer 11th offered both CME credits and MOC points - up to 20 each!   The 2020 Annual Scientific Meeting will be held on Friday, October 9, 2020 at the Hilton Westchester Hotel in Rye Brook, New York.
