Clinical Skills Session Proposal - Internal Medicine Meeting 2025

Thank you for your interest in participating in the ACP Internal Medicine meeting. The Clinical Skills Committee (CSC) is now accepting proposals for Internal Medicine Meeting 2025 which will be held in New Orleans, LA, April 3-5, 2025. The CSC places a priority on interactive workshops that focus on the acquisition or improvement of procedural skills, physical examination skills, and communication skills. The CSC is most interested in workshops that have a high likelihood of changing physician behavior using proven teaching techniques or new and innovative teaching strategies that have yet to be tested.

One hour and 45 minute time slots are available. Resources permitting, ACP will assist course directors in the acquisition of necessary equipment (beyond audiovisual equipment) and follow-up evaluations of learners. Faculty receive financial support for travel to the meeting, a per diem (hotel and food), and meeting registration. Final selections of workshops will be made by the CSC at its annual program planning meeting in July 2024.

The deadline to submit proposals for Internal Medicine Meeting 2025 is May 3, 2024. Proposals received after May 3, 2024 will be considered for Internal Medicine Meeting 2026.

Please contact Colleen Poole at or 215-351-2597 with any questions.

(Please list the individual segments of your session and include the length of time, number of instructors, and size of the groups for each segment)

ACCME requires that educational needs be based on learner's professional practice gaps. A gap is defined as "the difference between health care processes or outcomes observed in practice, and those potentially achievable on the basis of current professional knowledge.

Multiple sources can be used to document practice gaps. Sources include articles in peer reviewed journals, practice guidelines, reports published by the Institute of Medicine and other health care agencies.

Attach source(s) and highlight the gap:

Please specifically note the amount of time dedicated to didactic lectures versus the amount of time devoted toward interactive learning.  The appropriateness of the proposal for the Clinical Skills program is judged in large part on the use of interactive teaching techniques.
