Leadership in Health Policy (LEAHP)

The LEAHP program is one of the first national health policy career development programs of its kind. As part of a larger effort to expand career development opportunities for SGIM members, LEAHP is a year-long program focused on federal health policy knowledge and advocacy skills aligned with SGIM's core missions. LEAHP is aimed at junior level general internists with no prior health policy experience though all career levels are welcome to apply.

Applications will open in the fall.


The TEACH certificate program was developed by SGIM’s Education Committee to address the needs of junior clinician educators. The program focuses on Teaching Skills and offers quality instruction and assessment with tangible outcomes. Participants will leave the program with an interactive Teaching Portfolio to document their teaching performance and feedback obtained as well as reflections on strengths and weaknesses. Participation in the program also provides learners with life-long access to a community of medical educators. The TEACH Certificate is affordable, accessible, and can be completed in just one year.

Applications will open in the fall.


The LEAD program is designed for junior to mid-career faculty who wish to further develop their leadership skills. Participants of this program will learn from training and coaching from leadership scholars and successful GIM leaders, independent reading/assignments with online discussions and regularly scheduled direct communication with an ACLGIM LEAD coach during the 12 months following the program start.

Applications will open in the fall.

Unified Leadership Training for Diversity (UNLTD)
