Chapter Business Report 2017-2018: ECPC

Early Career Physicians Committee

Chair: Akihito Kawashima, MD


  • At the ACP Japan Chapter Annual Meeting 2018, we held a lecture session on “how to train speaking skills in English” for young doctors and medical students who have difficulty speaking out at international conferences because of language barriers.
  • To facilitate active discussions inside our committee, we made a SNS group account for the members.


  • This fall we’re planning to hold a spin-off workshop of the lecture session in the Annual Meetig 2018 in the Kanto area. This time, the focus will be on “how to read medical English efficiently”.
  • We’re also interested in advancement of technology in medicine. We’re now discussing ideas about holding an event featuring deep learning and application of AIs to medicine.
