Since the organization’s inception in 1978 as the Society for Research and Education in Primary Care Internal Medicine, SGIM has strived to advance and promote the field of academic general internal medicine. SGIM members conduct cutting edge research and teach medical students, residents, and fellows how to care for adult patients as internal medicine providers across the spectrum of care centers in both inpatient and outpatient settings. Additionally, our community acts as the research and clinical practice hub in internal medicine including preventative measures and treatment services for patients. Simply put, SGIM has been the home for academic internal medicine providers interested in research, education and clinical practice for over three decades. There are opportunities for you to get involved no matter where you are in your career.
