Welcome to ACLGIM

Welcome to the Association of Chiefs and Leaders of General Internal Medicine (ACLGIM)! ACLGIM is a professional community of leaders who are academic general internists. ACLGIM provides a venue for leadership development and networking with colleagues who serve as leaders in a variety of roles. We share challenges and solutions with the purpose of learning from one another.

ACLGIM is a professional home for general internists who are currently leaders as well as those who are emerging leaders. This includes Chiefs of General Internal Medicine, Chiefs of Hospital Medicine, Residency Program Directors, Directors of Primary Care Practices, general medicine leaders focused on VA healthcare, as well as general medicine leaders who are Chairs of Departments of Medicine, Deans, CMOs, and policymakers. And of course, we welcome those leaders who have “Associate” or “Vice” in their titles as well! Our members have key roles in advancing the education, research, quality/safety, and clinical missions of academic general internal medicine. ACLGIM is here to help these critically important leaders enhance their skills and expertise, and optimally contribute as leaders for the benefit of their patients, learners, faculty and institutions.

We welcome you to join ACLGIM – come join us in learning from and contributing to this inspiring community of leaders!
