Welcome to the SGIM FORUM, the official newsletter of the Society of General Internal Medicine.  Forum offers articles, essays, thought-pieces and editorials that reflect on health care trends, report on Society activities, and air important issues in general internal medicine and the health care system at large.dr-joseph-conigliaro-md-11360719.jpg

The content published in Forum has never been more relevant to SGIM members. So much has happened in health care over the last several months. It is imperative that we are up to date as to the impact that these events have on academic GIM, our patients, our learners and society.  Health care providers, particularly generalists, and their patients face uncertain time and and there is an urgent need for a coherent voice to communicate the values of SGIM.  I encourage you to contact me with ideas and comments on Forum content at Letters to the editor are welcome.

Forum is dedicated to serving the needs of its members by engaging them on thoughtful debates, point/counterpoint articles, and the newest ideas in research, education and clinical practice arenas.  The collective experience of the clinicians, educators and researchers in the Society as well as the consistent commitment of the Society to patients will serve us well as we navigate these uncertain times. Forum will continue to evolve as an important voice for the Society’s membership.  I hope you will join in on the chorus.
