We are excited to announce that the Washington chapter is sponsoring a new ACP board review preparation course, directed by Doug Paauw, MD, MACP and Joyce Wipf, MD, MACP.  The course will be held live via zoom from Wednesday through Friday, July 21-23, 2021. The three-day course is designed for new medicine resident graduates in preparation for the board-certification exam, as well as an update for physicians in practice.

Talks include numerous audience response questions so attendees can self-assess knowledge and reinforce patient care skills with clinical problem-solving and evidence-based practice. Sessions will be recorded so attendees can review again short-term after the course.

The long-standing national ACP Seattle board review course was cancelled during the pandemic. Given the popularity of the Seattle-led board review course and many requests to conduct a course, the ACP Washington Chapter is providing this for our members.
