#ProudtobeGIM is a campaign from the Society of General Internal Medicine aimed at encouraging medical students and residents to pursue GIM. We give general internists a framework to explain why their field is special. This web portal provides facts about the field of general internal medicine, information for students, and mechanisms through which established GIM physicians can interest their students and residents in the field. Join us on Twitter at #ProudtobeGIM.

What is General Internal Medicine (GIM)?


General internal medicine physicians are specialists who apply scientific knowledge and clinical expertise to the diagnosis, treatment, and compassionate care of adults across the spectrum from health to complex illness.
