 SGIM is...Education.

SGIM members are at the forefront of educating medical students, residents and fellows at academic medical centers and teaching hospitals.

The SGIM mission is “to promote improved patient care, research, and education in primary care and general internal medicine.”  To this end, the organization is divided into three content areas that correspond with our mission’s pieces.  The Education arm of SGIM is comprised of the Education Committee and various other task forces and work groups that help develop new material geared toward training goals in the field of general internal medicine.  It is also the central repository for information on curricula and educational resources for clinician educators.


If you have questions regarding the work of the SGIM Education Committee, please contact Dr. Stacy Higgins, Education Committee Chair.
