SGIM23 Plenary Speakers Announced

 , April 27, 2023

The Society of General Internal Medicine will be hosting its 2023 Annual Meeting May 10-13, 2023 in Aurora, CO at the Gaylord Rockies Resort. This year’s theme, General Internal Medicine: Meeting the Promise of Tomorrow, reflects on the fundamental changes that our field and our colleagues have experienced as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. As physicians, we continue to navigate changes in how we prepare our trainees, how we care for our patients, and how we gather, translate, and implement the evidence that informs our patient care and education. General internists must take a leadership role in innovation in research, education, and clinical practice and in so doing advance policies aimed at improving the health of our patients and communities.

SGIM’s presenters are doctors and other health care professionals responsible for teaching general internal medicine to the next generation of physicians. Most combine teaching with taking care of patients in clinical practices and/or research about medical treatment.
