SGIM’s 2016 annual meeting theme is “Generalists Engaged in Population Health: Improving Outcomes and Equity through Research, Education and Patient Care. The Society of General Internal Medicine is a national medical society of 3,000 physicians who are the primary internal medicine faculty of every medical school and major teaching hospital in the United States. The Journal of GIM is the official journal of SGIM.
