About the Meeting

SGIM’s 2015 annual meeting theme is Generalists in Teams: Adding Value to Patient Care, Research and EducationHealth care reform focused on esteemed patient-centered care is driving team-centered delivery system redesign as a salient interest for SGIM members.  Team-based models of patient care are rapidly evolving.  Education and training of General Internal Medicine physicians must include knowledge of team member responsibilities and new skills i.e. team leadership, quality, and patient safety measurement. Interprofessional training venues need to be developed.  Research methods will continually evolve to provide valued performance information from existing and new data sources.  Integration and coordination of physician efforts with non-physician professionals is critical for reform success.
