It is such a pleasure to welcome you to the Early Career Physician Task Force. The Early Career Physician (ECP) Task Force is composed of physicians who have completed graduate medical training and are practicing physicians in Internal Medicine and its subspecialties. We are a group of Internal Medicine Physicians who are dedicated to enhance the professional development and quality of life for young physicians, fostering their involvement in the American College of Physician, and providing resources and support as they pursue a career in Internal Medicine. In the past, the ECP Task Force has played a significant role in advocating on behalf of young physicians. Looking forward, we hope stay true to the tripartite mission of advocating for sound public health policies, supporting improvements in patient safety & quality, and championing physician wellness. We look forward to the coming future, and hope that you will join us by becoming an active member of the Early Career Physician Task Force.
