The American College of Physicians Convenes in New Orleans April 19-21

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


The American College of Physicians Convenes in New Orleans April 19-21

Featuring 250 scientific sessions and a hands-on, interactive Clinical Skills Center

WHAT: Internal Medicine 2012, the annual scientific meeting of the American College of Physicians

WHERE: New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center (MCCNO), Halls G-J

WHEN: Thursday, April 19-Saturday, April 21, 2012

DETAILS: More than 5,000 internal medicine physicians, or internists, subspecialists, medical students and allied health professionals will attend Internal Medicine 2012, the annual scientific meeting of the American College of Physicians (ACP). The meeting will feature 250 scientific sessions as well as many opportunities for networking and mentoring among physicians. Attendees will also have the opportunity to register for the Herbert S. Waxman Clinical Skills Center, a dynamic collection of activities that provide hands-on and interactive learning, allowing attendees to update their physical examination skills, learn office-based procedures and explore the latest medical software.

ACP is the largest medical specialty organization and the second-largest physician group in the United States. ACP members include 132,000 internal medicine physicians, related subspecialists and medical students. Internists specialize in the prevention, detection and treatment of illness in adults.

The last time New Orleans hosted the ACP was in 2004, and this year's Internal Medicine 2012 is estimated to bring in $12.9 million in economic impact.
