ACLGIM Benefits

No matter your current leadership position within your organization, ACLGIM provides networking opportunities and resources to enhance your leadership skills and fuel career growth. Members gain access to a peer community of academic leaders in GIM who can offer advice and support on issues such as leadership challenges, career development, and timely topics and trends relevant to leaders in medicine.


ACLGIM’s annual Summit brings members together as a community of academic general internists with a shared vision of embracing the future with confidence. The Summit is designed to offer valuable resources, facilitate collaboration, and foster networking among leaders in General Internal Medicine.

The ACLGIM Leon Hess Management Training and Leadership Institute focuses on enhancing leadership skills in GIM, teaching how to advocate for oneself and the faculty effectively, and understanding decision-making in institutions. Aimed at GIM and Hospital Medicine leaders, it covers leadership training, financial communication, and empowering staff.

The ACLGIM LEAD program is designed for junior- to mid-career faculty who wish to further develop their leadership skills. Training and coaching from leadership scholars and successful GIM leaders are provided at the SGIM annual meeting and continue for one year afterward.

ACLGIM's Unified Leadership Training for Diversity (UNLTD) program is based on the premise that diversifying leadership is an effective way to diversify faculty, which is a near-universal goal among major academic organizations. Ultimately, diversity among faculty will provide an environment conducive to increased diversity among medical students.

The ACLGIM Site Visit Program provides an opportunity for a GIM Division and Department to receive an objective assessment of its general internal medicine activities. After the visit has been completed, the site visit team provides suggestions for improvement to help the Division and its faculty contribute more effectively to the institution’s missions.
