To be Rescheduled | 2020 Rhode Island ACP Chapter Scientific Meeting

Providence, RI US
March 18, 2020

Join your colleagues in internal medicine at the next scientific meeting of the Rhode Island Chapter of the American College of Physicians (ACP), being held March 18, 2020 at the Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University.

The Committee has worked hard to bring you important topics in medicine from experts in our community, including controversies, practical guidance in the care of patients, updated guidelines, and the importance of considering bias in the practice of medicine and working to mitigate it so that all patients feel safe and welcome.

The meeting is also a great way for you to learn; reenergize; and reflect with peers, Chapter leaders, medical students and residents, and our fabulous speakers. Connect with the Rhode Island Chapter’s rich source of knowledge content and networking by attending our premier meeting for general internists, subspecialty internists, hospitalists, allied health practitioners, residents, and medical students.

In addition to earning CME credits, this conference is about making personal contacts and getting involved in your Chapter. You’ll engage with people who know your challenges and can help you find solutions. The opportunities available at this meeting will help you meet not only your needs as a physician but also the needs of the patients you serve.
