The Association of Chief and Leaders of General Internal Medicine (ACLGIM) provides a venue for leadership development (strategic and operational) and networking with leaders and peers from large and small organizations. We share challenges and solutions with the purpose of learning from each other.

ACLGIM is a professional home for Chiefs of General Internal Medicine, Chiefs of Hospital Medicine, directors of residency clinics (including combined medicine-pediatrics), directors of ambulatory clinical practices, directors of hospital medicine programs, general medicine leaders focused on VA healthcare, as well as general medicine leaders in an academic environment who have risen within their organizational structure to institutional roles of prominence, such as chairs of Internal Medicine, Dean's, CIOs, CMO's, and others. Our members have key roles in advancing the education, research, quality/safety, and clinical missions of academic general internal medicine.

We welcome you to join ACLGIM and help continue to advance the field.
