SGIM’s 2021 Annual Meeting, April 20-23, 2021

The 2021 SGIM Annual Meeting will transcend the boundaries of physical space to bring you a vital and energizing virtual learning experience. Connect with your colleagues and share new knowledge through live scientific Q&A sessions, interactive mentoring panels, and virtual networking opportunities from the comfort of your home or institution. The 2021 SGIM Annual Meeting offers incredible value and superior educational content presented by leading experts in clinical practice, medical education and research.

SGIM21 Meeting Theme: Transforming Values into Action

This year’s theme, Transforming Values into Action, highlights the strengths, values, and impact of leadership within General Internal Medicine. General internists play a unique role in leading from multiple perspectives – and this commitment and action move physicians and patients toward health and health equity. Generalists at all levels of training have the opportunity to choose actions on a day-to-day basis that represent our values and those of our communities and institutions. In a fragmented, uncertain world, we each lead in our own way and unite for the common good through research, medical education, advocacy, and exemplary clinical care.
