American College of General Medicine

 

The American College of General Medicine is a non-profit organization which was founded in 1997. The American College of General Medicine provides a course of instruction on the general practice of medicine to licensed general practice physicians. This course of instruction is called the General Practice Training Program. The American College of General Medicine is affiliated with the American Academy of General Physicians.

The American College of General Medicine is proud to have worked with faculty from top-rated colleges and universities.

One such college is The College of William and Mary which, in its antecedents, was the first college in the United States (1619) and the first college to establish an inter-collegiate fraternity, Phi Beta Kappa (1776). The College of William and Mary is also known as being the alma mater of Thomas Jefferson, the third President of the United States. The American College of General Medicine has sponsored and produced several conferences on various medical topics for the undergraduate students of The College of William and Mary. The American College of General Medicine has also sponsored, in the past, several merit-based awards for the undergraduate students of The College of William and Mary.

Another such college is the University of California, Irvine, College of Medicine. The American College of General Medicine has utilized the Student Training Center of the University of California, Irvine, College of Medicine for Part Two of the Clinical Skills Evaluation Section of the General Practice Training Program.

EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHY

"Docendo Discitur" - we learn by teaching.

The foundation for any academic endeavor must be a clear mind with freedom of thought. The result must be constructive. The primary task is the pursuit of truth.

MEDICAL AND SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH

The American College of General Medicine is in the process of initiating the development of a plan to engage in research activities in the basic sciences. The American College of General Medicine hopes to collaborate, in those activities, with The College of William and Mary. Some of the research areas of current interest include investigations into the role of phospholipids in cell-volume regulation, the role of angiogenesis in tumor cell proliferation, and the role of cytokines and dendritic cells in cancer therapy, and investigations into areas which will lead to a better understanding of the human immune system.

The American College of General Medicine is wanting to engage in clinical research which will incorporate the input of general practitioners who are in private practice across the nation. In such research, clinical information could be obtained which will help all practitioners improve the care of all patients by enhanced disease detection and treatment modalities.

The American College of General Medicine is also interested in conducting research in other disciplines. Some of these disciplines include biomedical ethics, healthcare policy, medical education, medical history, and medical law.
