Clinical Updates are didactic in nature; however, engaging teaching techniques are strongly encouraged. All clinical update sessions should be developed for the general audience of SGIM meeting attendees.
Clinical Updates will present information from five to eight papers (or other relevant resources) that, in the view of the presenters, have made a significant impact on the practice or understanding of the topic area. For Updates presented annually, content must reflect papers published over the most recent 12 months. For novel or infrequent Updates, content may include papers published in the preceding 24 months. The discussion of each paper must include the presenters' thoughts on how the paper adds to the literature and why its findings are relevant to clinical or teaching practice. Some topic examples include updates in medical education, health policy, diabetes management, women’s health, adolescent medicine, etc.
Novel and/or highly relevant update ideas are also welcome and may include topics such as changes/innovations in clinical care and education due to COVID-19, next generation payment models, telehealth/mobile health/virtual healthcare, technology in medicine, PrEP/PEP, interprofessional health care delivery, or gene therapy.
NOTE: Prior acceptance of an Update submission does not guarantee acceptance of the submission to SGIM24.
