The Student Committee held a program for student exchange at the ACPJC annual meeting 2019.
The program consisted of three presentations and the discussions were very exciting. More than 30 participants attended.
We thank everyone who helped make this program possible.
さらにcompetitiveなAwardとして、John Tooker Evergreen Awardがあります。この賞は支部を活性化させるための革新的な活動を評価するもので、今年は25支部から28件の応募がありました。この賞にnominateするだけで高い評価をうけるのですが、大変ハードルが高く、今年応募したのは全支部の3分の1未満です。そうした各支部の自信作がひしめき合う中，日本支部は他の4支部と共にこのEvergreen Award Winnerに選ばれました。海外支部では唯一のものです。
その受賞理由を選考委員会ChairのDr. Michael Tanの文面を引用しお知らせします。
Your submission, “In the Clinic: Japanese Translation Project,” captures the spirit of innovation that the John Tooker Evergreen Awards Program seeks to recognize. The Chapter subcommittee felt this was an outstanding initiative that demonstrates a powerful way that ACP international chapters can be active at the local level. Subcommittee members commended this program
for not only being innovative, but provides member
encouragement, engagement, and recruitment/retention all in one.
This program is a great model for other international chapters.
The student committee consists of dozens of medical students, mainly in the Kansai region. We are planning a workshop aimed at promoting ACP at the next General Assembly. I have not decided the content yet, but I am thinking about contents related to medical English and study abroad. I would like to do my best to make a good report soon.
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.
On June 21, 2018, we held a workshop entitled “English conversation workshop for those who don’t want to be “a statue” (to become speechless because of language barriers) at international conferences”, a spin-off event of the lecture session at the Annual Meeting 2018.
2. What We are Working On
We’re supporting young doctors in teaching interns and in choosing their carrier paths.
3. What We Plan to Initiate
We’re planning to hold a new event at the ACP Japan Chapter Annual Meeting 2019.
We’re interested in application of advancing technologies in medicine such as AI or deep-learning. We’re preparing to make an opportunity for young doctors to learn about it and have discussions on how it might affect future medicine.
ACP日本支部において、私はYoung Physicians’ Committee委員（現RFC）、次いでPublic Relations Committee委員、その後PRC副委員長を務めさせていただいております。いろいろなご縁が重なり、In the Clinic翻訳プロジェクトという画期的な無謀な企画もプロジェクトリーダーとしてはじめさせていただきました。これらのことができたのは、ACP日本支部を組織として築いてくださった先生方、現支部長の上野文昭先生、PRC前委員長安藤聡一郎先生、PRC委員長大島康雄先生ほか、ACP日本支部の先生方のお力添えあってのことと感謝いたしております。
このたび、In the Clinic翻訳プロジェクトのご縁もあり、FACPに昇格させていただきました。FACPをいただいたということは、今後もACP日本支部、日本の総合内科医療/教育に貢献するようにとの暖かい叱咤激励と受け取っており、今後とも精進してゆきたいと存じます。
I recall joining ACP Japan Chapter in 2011.
After completion of Internal Medicine Residency 2006-2009 at Virginia Mason Medical Center in Seattle and obtaining ABIM, I was confident of acquiring general internal medicine clinical skill, I was wondering how I could implement what I’ve learned in the U.S. in Japanese clinical training.
I remember when I first participated in ACP Japan Chapter Annual Meeting as one of the lecturers. I was very excited to find a community for aspiring general internists who have the same clinical passion to implement good general internal medicine practice. I felt that by attending this academic annual meeting regularly, I could be confident in my clinical knowledge and skills and would have life long learning opportunity.
I have served as a member of Young Physicians’ Committee and then a member of Public Relation Committee (PRC) and currently am a Vice Chair for the PRC. We as PRC started ‘In the Clinic Japanese Translation Project (ITC project)’ and I am proudly leading this project as the project leader. This project couldn’t have come to fruition without the support by Dr. Fumiaki Ueno, Governor for ACP Japan Chapter, Dr. Soichiro Ando, the immediate past Chair for PRC and Dr. Yasuo Oshima, the current Chair for PRC.
With the successful launch and progress of this ITC project, I have been promoted as an FACP. I take that being promoted as an FACP means to continue to contribute to ACP Japan Chapter and to promote General Internal Medicine in Japan, which I would proudly like to continue for the rest of my medical career.
