#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 today on Twitter at #ProudtobeGIM and during #ProudtobeGIM Week - February 21-24, 2022.

Applications Now Being Accepted for the 2021-2022 Grant Year!

The Society of General Internal Medicine and the American College of Physicians (SGIM/ACP) are seeking medical schools/institutions interested in participating in ProudtobeGIM, a nationwide campaign to introduce medical students and PGY 1-2 residents to the field of GIM.

Selected institutions will receive an honorarium in the amount of $2000 to host one or more local event(s) aimed at encouraging medical students/early residents to enter the field. SGIM is partnering with ACP for the third year to continue broadening the scope of the campaign and encouraging institutions to work alongside ACP chapters. We hope this will bring education about the field of general internal medicine to an even larger cohort of students and residents during the coming year.

Since 2015, SGIM has funded over 70 institutions/ACP chapters for ProudtobeGIM programs nationwide and several institutions have participated in the program on their own without funding. Based on the success of the program, we are able to offer up to 20 additional grants for the coming 2021-2022 funding year.
