Society of General Internal Medicine

The Society of General Internal Medicine is a medical society of over 3,000 physicians who are the primary care internal medical faculty of every medical school and major teaching hospital in the United States.

The Society of General Internal Medicine is a national medical society of 3,000 physicians who are the primary care internal medical faculty of every medical school and major teaching hospital in the United States. SGIM members teach medical students, residents, and fellows how to care for adult patients. They also conduct research that improves primary care, preventative measures, and treatment services for patients.

SGIM is a member-based international association of over 3,000 of the world’s leading general internists, who are dedicated to improving access to care for vulnerable populations, eliminating health care disparities and enhancing medical education. The members of the Society advance the practice of medicine through their commitment to providing comprehensive, coordinated, and cost-effective care to adults, educating the next generation of outstanding physicians, and conducting cutting-edge research to improve quality of care and clinical outcomes of all patients.

Mission: SGIM is dedicated to improving patient care, education, and research in primary care and general internal medicine.

Health workers are on the front lines of the #COVID19 pandemic. Punitive measures against staff who speak out internally or externally regarding their lack of #PPE should be avoided at all costs. Our statement:

SGIM staff is doing our part to #StayHome and #Flattenthecurve. A huge thanks to SGIM members and all those on the #Covid19 front lines.

At SGIM we are #ProudtobeGIM & want to know how #COVID19 is affecting you. What word(s) describe your feelings or experiences? Reply here: View live word cloud!
