Davoren Chick M.D. named to new role with ACP
The American College of Physicians (ACP) recently named Davoren Chick M.D., as the organization’s senior vice president for medical education, effective September 1. Chick is an associate professor in the Department of Internal Medicine and Department of Learning Health Sciences at U-M.

“Dr. Chick is an accomplished, creative, and well-respected medical educator, having designed curricula and taught and lectured nationally and internationally,” said Darilyn Moyer, M.D., ACP’s executive vice president and CEO. “We look forward to having her help lead the American College of Physicians’ medical education efforts and continuing to provide cutting-edge educational resources for internal medicine physicians.”
Chick will be responsible for the development and publication of ACP’s medical knowledge products and services, advancing career and faculty development in internal medicine, planning ACP’s annual scientific meeting and the development of ACP’s resources to help physicians prepare for certification and recertification and to meet their continuing medical educational needs.
