Frederick L. Brancati
Mentorship and Leadership Award

Dr. Fred Brancati inspired many trainees to pursue academic general internal medicine (GIM) and motivated all of those around him to feel that our careers in GIM were worthwhile and served a greater purpose, even when the external conditions said otherwise. In response to the outpouring of inquiries regarding how to recognize his contributions to GIM, the Society of General Internal Medicine (SGIM) and Association of Chiefs and Leaders in GIM (ACLGIM) are honored to announce the Frederick L.
