President's Message

Profits before patients: Private equity and commodification

Health care system consolidation and market- and profit-driven motivation have become at odds with the realities of health care, where market forces do not perfectly align with the product line.

Better is still possible: Promoting improved health for all

We need the courage to fix the structural and fiscal inefficiencies that result in the United States having the highest health care costs and the worst outcomes among developed countries.

Taking action to bridge the physician shortage

Addressing the critical physician shortage requires a comprehensive strategy focused on empowering physicians, revamping training models, and reshaping incentives to prioritize patient-centered care.

Support, empathy, system changes vital to battling burnout

It is important to provide support to physicians and learners in the ways they and their patients need it.

The ethical nexus of health care: Purpose over profit

ACP is comprehensively examining the corrosive impact of profit-driven health care on the sacred patient-physician relationship in order to pave the way for potential solutions.

Looking ahead at the past

ACP membership inspires through its principles, opportunities, and relevance.

The human right to health

The intrinsic connection between health and life's quintessential pursuits is undeniable.

Transforming health care to improve U.S. life expectancy

The sobering decline in U.S. life expectancy reaffirms the exigency of health care reform anchored in a proactive and comprehensive approach.

Tackling burnout as an occupational phenomenon

Workplace problems need workplace solutions, rather than the frequent, well-intended, and misguided workplace programming that tries to emphasize making already resilient physicians tougher.

Silent epidemic: Alcohol and preventable death, despair

Alcohol use disorder is often linked to poverty, unemployment, social isolation, and other social determinants of health, and medicine must address these underlying factors to genuinely reduce the risks associated with alcohol.

Universal health care: Why not?

The College recommends universal coverage, independent of a person's health status, income, employment, or place of residence, with essential benefits, adequate access, and lower administrative costs.

Health equity: The finish line

Repairing multiple layers within systems is fundamental in changing policy and involves advocacy at the individual level and at the professional society level.

Our words matter

Difficult conversations offer moments when physicians can be true healers and provide empathy, compassion, and comfort through something as simple as their words.

Relationships and return on investment

ACP membership offers medical education, advocacy and evidence-based policy, and a community of colleagues.

The more you know … the more you know

Physicians should be in charge of health care teams because of the breadth and quality of their medical education.

Intimate partner violence: An epidemic hiding in plain sight

Despite a recommendation to screen for intimate partner violence and the many tools available to physicians, barriers to implementation remain.

Primary care: When will we learn?

Primary care remains underfunded despite its association with decreased health care costs and improved health outcomes.

Internal medicine: Validating our identity and value

ACP is launching a new campaign to educate about the depth and diversity of internal medicine and highlight the value that all internal medicine physicians bring to health care.

Diversity in leadership begins with sponsorship

ACP's President reflects on sponsoring diversity at the chapter level to promote future national governance.

Advocacy is a marathon that mimics our patient encounters

We do advocacy work on a daily basis when we see patients, and we have to approach our interactions with legislators in a similar way.

Staying connected: Touch over tech

ACP's new President addressed the physician-patient connection in his first column.

Inclusivity that never dies: The future of ACP

ACP's President recaps his tenure as he discusses the College's efforts at diversity, equity, and inclusion.

3 Cs: Corporatization, consolidation, commodification

Current trends in health care emphasize the importance of our continued advocacy efforts for our patients and our profession.

Inclusivity that is accepting: Embracing different sexualities

Everyone, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity, deserves equal access to all of the resources, all of the benefits, and all of the protections available to others.

The journey to equity includes health equity

The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted health equity, and how many health care disparities exist, such as to telemedicine, mental health, and substance use disorders.

Inclusivity that contemplates: More than just diversity

Diversity without inclusivity is incomplete, but inclusivity can be tough to measure, and subtle in its effect.

Inclusivity that reevaluates: Assessing meritocracy

The playing field in a meritocracy is not always level because it is at least partly class-based, with wealthy parents affording their children advantages that they might believe were earned instead of inherited.

Inclusivity that calls for embracing: The importance of IMGs

International medical graduates are crucial to the practice of health care in America and around the world.

Inclusivity that is introspective: The need for racial equity

ACP's President continues his series of columns exploring themes of diversity, equity, and inclusion.

Inclusivity that compels: He for she

Gender inequity in our society is not exclusive to medicine, and we have a long history of it in the U.S.


The College has become a leader in the world of justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion. While it is tempting to feel a sense of accomplishment, there is a gnawing feeling that more needs to be done.

A little girl's dream: The path to becoming ACP President

ACP's outgoing President reflects on her life, her career, the past year, and the lessons it has taught her.

Spring planting for a new harvest

The COVID-19 pandemic has taken half a million American lives. Amid this loss, the new year offers new political leadership, new insights, and new plans for the future.

From crisis to opportunity: Time to invest in primary care

The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed an inadequate and antiquated reimbursement system for primary care, compounded by a neglected public health system.

Channeling the ‘Fauci effect’

At the local level, really local, like our offices or in our own communities, we are the Dr. Faucis.

The pain of 2020 and the hope for 2021

We have lost so much this past year, but loss also reminds us of our abundant blessings, so many we take for granted daily.

Internists must navigate multiple worlds during the pandemic

Addressing the COVID-19 pandemic has cast a bright light on the value of the internist's comprehensive case management skills, among them symptom identification, accurate diagnosis, and disease management.

My ‘Zoom’ presidency

ACP's President reflects on how the pandemic has changed her ability to interact with members, patients, and even her own family.

The devastating trifecta of 2020: Is there any hope?

Physicians facing crises of a pandemic, economic losses, and social unrest should offer hope to patients as they are treated for the consequences of these and other ailments.

Getting to the new normal

A new way of conducting office visits in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic seems frightening at first, but the precautions taken instill in patients confidence that they are safe visiting their doctor.

Shaken, but not deterred

Especially during a pandemic, internists are front-line health care physicians.

Battling the hydra of the medical-industrial complex

ACP leadership has developed a new vision for the future of American health care in order to achieve universal coverage and improve access, reduce costs, improve the dysfunctional payment system, and reduce administrative burdens and excessive complexity.

Oaths, charters, and our professional ethos

A re-examination of the Hippocratic Oath leads to questions of ethics, professionalism, and a more modern code that physicians can follow.

Bias, metacognition, and their roles in our critical thinking

Medical heuristics are strategies that lead in quicker fashion to decisions or conclusions, but they can also lead us to using only part of the information that a clinician might need.

Internists must reassume the mantle of the ‘doctor's doctor’

The future of the general medicine specialist is in fact bright, but it will require a significant effort on an individual, professional, and societal level.

Are internists team leaders or orchestra conductors?

Experience gained during residency training alongside so many other specialists and a role as care coordinators makes internal medicine specialists become uniquely qualified to serve as the conductor of this patient care orchestra.

Osler, expertise, and phronesis personified

From residency onward throughout a physician's career, becoming a diagnostician requires the ability to distinguish important clues or details from those that are not as pertinent to the situation at hand, a slowly developed skill that ultimately is recognized as an “expertise.”

Defining our identity does not include the ‘P word’

The term “health care provider” implies that health care can be conceptualized as just another commodity, when it is really about helping people who are suffering, managing complex problems, and counseling them how to live.

The challenge of time

Clinical lives are run by schedules with office visit slots as short as 15 minutes, often not enough time to handle the issues of any given patient.

The importance of ‘the caring’

The fragmented health delivery system in which physicians maneuver can interfere with patients' perception of how much a clinician cares.

‘The Pause’ allows physicians a chance to ponder

“The Pause” allows physicians a chance to reflect upon a diagnosis or how to communicate with patients, as well as reset their mindset throughout the day.

At the end, a focus on values, purpose, attention, truth

In her final column, ACP's outgoing President looks ahead at the College's priorities and challenges to advance the dialogue that will move us into the coming decade.

Understand factors that determine health, how they mix

Myriad aspects of life impact health, and these social determinants include multiple models that include more than the physical body.

International colleagues face familiar problems

The conversations taking place at international medical meetings could be taking place at our local chapter meetings.

Looking back and looking forward

As the year begins, ACP's President shares where ACP has been and where membership voices have guided ACP to engage in the coming year.

Gratitude and thanks for those who vaccinate

A particularly difficult experience is confronting diseases that might have been prevented through vaccination, yet it is care that prevents illness and greater pain.

ACP resources aid the practice of medicine

ACP has resources to support internists' ability to care for patients on a daily basis, including regulatory and business factors that impact practice.

Prevention as a prescription for cancer

Lifestyle modification and integrative approaches as interventions for aging well are simple and straightforward, yet these changes can be difficult to implement and sustain.

Study other arts to practice better medicine

Patient communication skills hinge upon careful listening and speaking, cultural literacy, humility, and awareness of the patient's health literacy and numeracy.

Mission and purpose can counter feelings of burnout

ACP's president discusses physician burnout and the College's efforts to address it.

ACP bridges perspectives within internal medicine

ACP can serve as a virtual agora where the different professional branches can draw from their common root of internal medicine, and bridge differences by providing a space where members can talk through and think through different perspectives while remaining connected to patient care.

Doctors with borders

What parameters determine ACP's responsibility to speak out on what is right and wrong, set guidelines, offer guidance, and articulate policy on behalf of internal medicine?

Pick six

Six core competencies in medical education have stood the test of time. Six more could help physicians understand what it means to be a competent internist.

Preventing burnout is essential medicine for physicians

ACP is working to identify and address the root causes of the problem that most affect the practice of internal medicine and creating a network of support for distressed internists.

Signs of progress for MOC, but more work needed

The past year's worth of advocacy to improve the Maintenance of Certification process has succeeded, in part, but the issue will remain in front of ACP leadership in coming years.

ACP helps transform practices to value-based care

ACP is 1 of 10 Support and Alignment Networks that received grants from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to support physicians as they improve patients' experience of care, improve the health of populations, and reduce the per capita cost of health care through the expansion of quality improvement capacity.

Quality and cost of care at the end of life

Success in end-of-life care begins with how effectively physicians communicate with patients and their loved ones.

Excellent internal medicine takes time

Internists often feel pressured to see patients in less time than patients need, creating dissatisfaction on both sides. The American College of Physicians is advocating for that time, to enhance the quality of each visit and allow for thoroughness and for reflection on the encounter.

Students and residents are also burning out
