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.
