About American College of Physicians – Internal Medicine
The American College of Physicians – Internal Medicine (ACP-IM) is the nation’s largest medical specialty society. Its mission is to enhance the quality and effectiveness of health care by fostering excellence and professionalism in the practice of medicine. ACP-IM membership includes over 90,000 physicians in general internal medicine and related subspecialties, including cardiology, gastroenterology, nephrology, endocrinology, hematology, rheumatology, neurology, pulmonary disease, oncology, infectious diseases, allergy and immunology, and geriatrics. ACP-IM sponsors continuing medical education (CME) programs for physicians, including the Annual Session, the Medical Knowledge Self-Assessment Program (MKSAP), more than 50 postgraduate courses annually, and the Library for Internists (LiFI). ACP-IM also has a program called the Clinical Efficacy Assessment Project that develops clinical practice guidelines. The Council of Medical Societies was established in 1979 to incorporate core subspecialty disciplines with other specialties that are viewed as having a relationship to internal medicine.
