SGIM is Clinical Practice...

SGIM advocates for the central role of general internal medicine in health care, supports the clinical practice of members, collaborates with other organizations to promote our discipline, and coordinates the work of SGIM’s various constituencies in this advancing the practice of general internal medicine

The SGIM mission is “to promote improved patient care, research, and education in primary care and general internal medicine.” To this end, the organization is divided into three content areas that correspond with our mission’s pieces. The Clinical Practice arm of SGIM is comprised of the Clinical Practice Committee and various other task forces and work groups that help develop new material geared toward clinical practice goals in the field of general internal medicine.
