Letter From President
The Association of Cameroonian Physicians in the Americas (ACPA) has continued to live true to its mission of fostering personal and professional growth of its members and engaging with our peers in Cameroon to improve healthcare delivery and outcomes.
In 2024, the ACPA has experienced a greater than four-fold increase in its active membership. Special focus has been to build the pipeline for future ACPA members through targeted programs for trainees and foreign-trained physicians seeking to integrate the United States medical system. There is renewed enthusiasm about our strategic partnerships with the Cameroon Medical Council and the Ministry of Public Health - Cameroon. Thanks to our charitable donors, we have sustained the momentum of our medical missions through strategic collaborations with local organizations in Cameroon.
The theme for the Annual Scientific Conference this year is: Fostering Brilliance: Elevate, Engage, and Evolve. It is time to Elevate the ACPA as the home for all physicians of Cameroonian origin in North America. It is time to Engage all stakeholders in North America and Cameroon in our strategic vision of promoting our health especially in this era of rapid changes and disruptions imposed by digital technologies. Finally, it is time to Evolve the ACPA from the formative stage to a maturity phase.
To achieve this strategic vision, the ACPA needs YOU. We must work together to realize the potential that is inherent our community. We must work together as ONE.
I look forward to seeing you all in Houston, TX from April 26th to April 28th, 2024.
Christian Bime MD, MSc.
President - ACPA
