Biography

Historical Note

The American Clinical and Climatological Association was organized in 1884 by a group of physicians and scientists who set about to improve medical education, research and practice in this country. Its initial concern was with tuberculosis and its treatment by residence in a suitable climate. Over its 100+ years, the society has expanded its field of interest to that of all aspects of internal medicine. Its membership comprises physicians engaged in both academic pursuits and clinical practice. The object of the Association is the clinical study of disease. With the rapid advances in medicine, the Association provided a place for the presentation and critical discussion of progress in research, teaching and clinical aspects of internal medicine. The members of ACCA area selected on the basis of leadership and excellence in their chosen field. Active membership is restricted to 175 physicians. [from http://www.accassoc.org]
