(Honesdale, July 1, 2009)…Sean McVeigh, MD, the Director of Wayne Memorial Hospital’s Sleep Disorders Center and Respiratory Care Services, is now a Fellow in the American College of Physicians (ACP), the largest society of internists in the world. The new designation augments a list of prestigious titles for Dr. McVeigh. The dual board-certified internist and pulmonologist is also a Fellow in the American College of Chest Physicians (ACCP) and President of the Wayne Memorial Hospital (WMH) Medical Staff.
ACP Fellowship is an honorary designation recognizing ongoing individual service and contributions to the practice of medicine. The ACP requires its fellows to be board certified (three years of post-grad training, plus a rigorous two-day exam), recommended by other ACP fellows and able to prove they are always growing and learning through public service, teaching, publishing or advanced training. Dr. McVeigh frequently hosts and presents seminars and workshops; in March, he led a multi-physician presentation on lung cancer to WMH staff and others in the community. In 2006, he was the chief medical proponent of WMH’s successful campaign to make its campus tobacco free.
