“We are honored and pleased that Dr. Moyer will lead the most prestigious association in the country representing internal medicine,” said Larry R.

In the newly appointed position, Moyer will be the senior staff officer of the American College of Physicians with the authority and responsibility to implement all College policies and activities.

"I look forward to helping ACP continue its mission of helping physicians provide the best possible care to their patients," said Moyer, who also serves as the director of the Internal Medicine Residency Program and assistant dean for Graduate Medical Education. "Whether it is issuing evidence-based clinical recommendations or helping physicians understand new payment systems, ACP plays a critical role in our nation's healthcare by fostering excellence in the practice of medicine."
