Choosing Wisely Recommendations

In September 2013, the Society of General Internal Medicine (SGIM) released a list of specific tests or procedures that are commonly ordered but not always necessary in general internal medicine as part of the Choosing Wisely® campaign, an initiative of the ABIM Foundation. The list identifies five targeted, evidence-based recommendations that can support conversations between patients and physicians about what care is really necessary. These recommendations were reviewed and revised as of February 2017 and have gone through a further revision in 2022. Click here for the most up-to-date recommendations.
