Wynes Named ACCP Fellow

Allison Wynes, ARNP, has been named a Fellow of the American College of Chest Physicians (ACCP), one of the largest and oldest professional organizations devoted to thoracic medicine and diseases of the chest and publisher of the peer-reviewed academic journal CHEST. The designation of Fellow, according to Dr. Kevin Doerschug, “distinguishes the individual as a recognized specialist, demonstrating sustained excellence in clinical medicine and education in the field of chest medicine.” Ms. Wynes and Dr. Doerschug are both members of the Division of Pulmonary, Critical Care, and Occupational Medicine and work in the Medical Intensive Care Unit on 5RCP.

Two years ago, ACCP expanded the criteria, allowing non-physicians to apply for and obtain Fellow designations, which is an acknowledgement of the education gained and demonstrated excellence by advanced practice providers and other highly skilled professionals in the field. Ms. Wynes said, “I’m grateful to receive this designation, and I’m excited that organizations like this are recognizing the contributions that ARNPs and PAs provide to critical care medicine.” She has also been invited to participate in the convocation at the CHEST Annual Meeting in San Antonio in October.
