Resident/Fellow Committee 2019

 

Chair: Yoshito Nishimura Vice-Chair: Yuto Unoki

【Report (What we have done)】

Our committee (Resident-Fellow Committee; RFC) held a seminar called “The 5th RFC Seminar featuring cardiovascular medicine in November 2019. Holding “RFC Seminars” is one of our main projects to broaden the community of RFC in Japan. In November, more than 40 Japanese junior residents and fellows gathered in Tokyo to learn together to strive for excellence in internal medicine frontlines.

Also, we were to help organize the Joint Session of the Japanese Society of Internal Medicine (JSIM) and the American College of Physician Japan Chapter (ACPJC) in the margin of the 2020 JSIM Annual Meeting in April. Besides, we had planned six different seminars and workshops for the 2020 American College of Physician Japan Chapter. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, both of them were unfortunately canceled.

【Plan (What we are going to do)】

We are planning to organize a “Virtual RFC Seminar“ in collaboration with US-trained attendings at the beginning of the FY2020. Amid the era of social distancing with the COVID-19 outbreak, we believe our committee may work as a “communication and collaboration hub” to connect exceptional Japanese residents and fellows. Also, we will work with the Council of Resident/Fellow Members of ACP to share the best practices to enhance the quality of postgraduate internal medicine training while fighting against the COVID-19 outbreak.

Resident Fellow Committee welcomes new members!

Dear,

I am very pleased to introduce new members of the committee.

Best regards,

PRC chair Yasuo Oshima, MD, PhD, FACP

The 5th RFC seminar – Deep Dive into Cardiology –


Tomohiro Hirai (Mie University)


Yoshito Nishimura M.D., Ph.D. (Department of General Medicine, Okayama University Hospital)

I believe every one of you might have felt cardiology is difficult to learn. In the 5th Resident-Fellow Committee (RFC) Seminar on November 10, is a solution for those people.

The RFC Seminar is held up to twice a year. In the seminars, we invite internal medicine subspecialists as well as doing a brief “Dr’s Dilemma” like session to disseminate the high-tiered, essential internal medicine skills to medical students and residents. Through the seminars, we aim to get them together to strengthen the community of ACP as well. The 5th RFC Seminar was held in Nihonbashi, Tokyo. The guest lecturers were Dr. Akio Kawamura, Professor and Director of Department of Cardiology, International University of Health and Welfare, and Dr. Atsushi Mizuno from Cardiovascular Center of St. Luke’s International Hospital. Approximately 30 participants gathered Tokyo for the seminar.

In the lecture of Dr. Kawamura, he showed us his career path as a cardiologist as well as his view on medical education and treatment of patent foramen ovale (PFO). He also briefly summarized the clinical implication and rationale to treat PFO, which was meaningful to generalists as well.

Dr. Mizuno organized a session in a group-work style to let participants learn “how to manage heart failure and its complications”. Through the session, participants acquired skills of initial managements, differential diagnosis and clinical management. All the participants apparently enjoyed his session.

Lastly in the afternoon, the RFC committee presented a small Dr’s Dilemma-like session. Not only the participants solved the quizzes, Dr. Mizuno also added clinical implications and reality in the frontline clinical field to every question and answer. We are sure that this was the way to get the most from clinical quizzes.

RFC plan to continue seminars like this. Through the seminars, annual meetings and so on, we hope to contribute to the further development of ACP Japan Chapter as well as the field of Internal Medicine in Japan.

ACP日本支部 Resident-Fellow Committee主催 「第5回RFCセミナー」

「循環器って難しい」、そんなことを一度は思ったことはありませんか?今回のResident-Fellow Committee主催「第5回RFCセミナー」は、そのような若手医師にありがちな苦手意識を忘れさせるような、濃密な企画となりましたのでご報告します。

RFCセミナーは、年に2回程度、内科各分野のスペシャリストを講師としてお招きし、特別講演やMKSAPの類題などを通じて、やる気溢れる学生や研修医をさらにワンステップ進化させ、ACP日本支部の輪を若手の中で広げることを目的としたものです。
今回の舞台は11月10日(日)、東京都日本橋。「循環器」をテーマに、河村朗夫先生(国際医療福祉大学医学部循環器内科 主任教授)、水野篤先生(聖路加国際病院心血管センター 医幹)をお招きし、全国各地から学生、初期・後期研修医、さらにはベテラン医師まで、約30名が集いました。

河村先生の講演では、先生が循環器内科医として歩まれてきた経歴のご紹介から、卵円孔開存の病態と治療、医学教育者としての在り方、考え方についてなど、幅広くお話頂きました。会場が笑いに包まれるような雰囲気の中でも、卵円孔開存の先進治療や臨床的意義等、驚かされる医学的知識もちりばめられた講義で、ついつい聞き入ってしまいました。

水野先生の「合併症を考慮した心不全治療」をテーマとした症例検討会では、心不全診療の初期対応、鑑別診断、そしてマネジメントまで、全てを網羅的に、グループワークを通じて学びました。循環器分野に限らず、医師としての学習、後輩指導のテクニック等もお話頂き、会場全体が盛り上がっていたのが印象的でした。

そして、午後はRFC委員が作成したMKSAPの類題を用いた「診断道場」でした。このセッションでは、クイズ形式で臨床問題を参加者全員で解いていくだけでは無く、水野先生から日本での実臨床や、ご自身の経験を踏まえたコメントを問題毎に頂き、机上の空論に留まらない実践的な知を習得することができました。

セミナー全体を通して、臨床現場の第一線で活躍されている専門医の先生方から各々の専門領域やジェネラリストへの示唆について聞くことができ、参加者は皆循環器診療におけるリアルな臨床現場を垣間見ることができたと思います。RFCは今後もこのような企画の立案等を通じて、ACP日本支部、日本の内科診療の発展に貢献していきたいと思っています。

当委員会(以降RFC)では、2018年度年次総会にて実施した以下の企画(①RFC企画として新専門医制度に関するシンポジウム ②招聘講師による内科医師のための救急外来マネジメントワークショップ ③若手医師のための懇親会)、及び、10月に開催した第4回RFCセミナーについてご報告させていただきます。

年次総会で実施した①については、主に総合内科若しくは総合診療科で活躍されている先生方からのインプットをいただき、始動したばかりの専門医制度に対して現場の懸念や問題点を明確化する良い機会となりました。同制度は現在も様々な懸念事項を含みつつも継続されており、2019年度も継続して議論する意義があると考えています。本年度の反省を活かし、スペシャリスト、新専門医制度にて実際に研修している医師からのインプットを入れ込みつつ、より良い制度を作っていくために現場から何らかの提言が出来れば、と考えています。②及び③では、それぞれ50名、60名程度の参加者が相互対話的にディスカッション、懇親を図ることができ、参加者にとって実りある時間を提供できただけでなく、日本でACPの輪を拡げることにも貢献できたと考えています。

第4回RFCセミナーでは、7割の非会員を含む40名の参加者が集い、「ジェネラリストのためのリウマチ膠原病」のテーマで共に学ぶ機会を提供しました。募集開始後2週間以内に定員を超える参加希望者が充足され、RFCに限らず、ACP日本支部の若手医師間における知名度向上、充実した内容の企画を行うキャパシティのある団体としてのプレセンスのアピールを行いました。また、MKSAPを題材とした自己学習方法の提案及びセミナーの需要が非常に高いことを確認でき、今後も年2回のRFCセミナー及び総会企画の立案・実施を継続して、MKSAPを前面に出してACPの日本におけるプレセンス向上にも寄与していくことを計画しています。今後とも皆様のご支援の程をよろしくお願い申し上げます。

Overcoming the Challenge to the World ! Dr’s Dilemma, ACP Internal Medicine 2018

Yoshito Nishimura M.D.

 I departed from Japan to New Orleans with determination to fight against the United States teams in the Dr’s Dilemma National Competition in ACP Internal Medicine Meeting 2018. Dr’s Dilemma is a competition to test the medical knowledge of around 50 teams, each representing each ACP chapters around the World. I participated in the competition with doctors from Nerima Hikarigaoka Hospital, the champion team in the 2017 ACP Japan Chapter Dr’s Dilemma Competition. In the elimination round, we fought against 4 teams including the state of Washington and Massachusetts. Quizzes were first read loud by the speaker, and the scripts were shown up on the screen afterward. Although we could reach the final question, we could not go through to the semi-final round. We ended up being the 4th, taking out the Massachusetts team. Not only I could compete in the great competition, the conference itself also gave me opportunities to expand the wave of exchange with physicians around the world, making the experience was an one chance in a million, I deeply appreciate everyone in the ACP Japan Chapter and Okayama University Hospital, Department of General Medicine, for substantial support. Finally, I would like to thank ACP Japan Chapter for supporting us with travel grants.
