SGIM Publications

SGIM has a variety of publications that act as vehicles for dialogue and interaction among members and the scientific community at large. Published monthly (in both hard copy and electronic form), the Journal of General Internal Medicine provides cutting-edge medical research to the internal medicine community. SGIM Forum (also monthly) provides insight into the SGIM community and reports Society activities. Other publications, like SGIM's residency and fellowship directories, are sources of specific medical, curriculum, and program material. The Society also publishes occasional white papers and press releases to alert the medical community to its position on a variety of current issues.

Choosing Wisely Recommendations

In September 2013, the Society of General Internal Medicine (SGIM) released a list of specific tests or procedures that are commonly ordered but not always necessary in general internal medicine as part of the Choosing Wisely® campaign, an initiative of the ABIM Foundation. The list identifies five targeted, evidence-based recommendations that can support conversations between patients and physicians about what care is really necessary.
