Welcome to ACLGIM

It is with gratitude to the members and a sense of great responsibility to the organization that I now serve as president of the Association of Chiefs and Leaders in General Internal Medicine (ACLGIM). I am stepping into a role that has beenably and admirably filled by great leaders in general internal medicine over the past 21 years. I’m writing this article as COVID-19 rages all around us and calls upon us to lead in ways we could not have imagined a few months ago. I cherish the opportunity to learn from others in ACLGIM about how they are approaching this crisis with courage, creativity, patient centeredness, and grit—all the characteristics that define general internist leaders. I’m looking forward to continuing to share what we’re learning and to supporting each other.  Read more.
