Welcome to the 2022 PA-ACP Scientific Meeting

Click to view the Conference Program

Dear Colleagues,

We are thrilled to be coming together in-person again this year, and hope that you will take advantage of the time to reconnect with your peers, chapter leaders, and great speakers. We offer you access to the Pennsylvania 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 will have many opportunities throughout the program to engage with people who know your challenges and can help you find solutions to your practice as a physician, and help meet the needs of the patients that you serve.

After the conference, you can stay engaged with the chapter by attending future in-person meetings, as well as through our robust library of education-al programs offered on our website. The website has many additional resources, including our speakers bureau, information on our advocacy efforts, opportunities to get involved, up-to-date news and information from your chapter, and a myriad of resources from state and federal partners and stakeholders.

Again, we are so happy and grateful that you have decided to join us.
