"SGIM members are leading primary care practice innovation, redesign, and transformation in order to foster "joy in practice" for doctors and better care for patients"

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 national efforts to improve ambulatory care, reduce physician burnout, and bring back joy in practice for primary care physicians. It works to disseminate best practices, toolkits, educational materials, and other evidence-based clinical practice resources to support improvements in the practice environment.

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.
