Annual Meeting Purpose

This meeting is intended to develop the professional skills of academic general internists and others interested in medical education, health care delivery and policy, and clinical general medicine. A variety of learning modalities, including lectures, workshops, and author presentations, offers attendees the opportunity to develop a personalized educational experience. Research findings, interesting clinical cases, and skill-building opportunities that address issues important to academic general medicine will be presented.

Learning Objectives

  1. Apply at least one skill learned at the meeting to promote physician resilience in clinical practice, teaching, research, advocacy, and/or leadership.
  2. Compare and contrast the different strategies to organizational change in general internal medicine clinical practice, teaching, research, advocacy, and/or leadership.
  3. Identify at least one action item learned at the meeting to enhance career development and burnout prevention as clinicians, educators, researchers, and/or administrators.

Disclosure of Dual Commitments Policy

SGIM requires all presenting faculty to comply with the UASOM Policy on Financial Disclosure. All faculty members (speakers/presenters/panel participants) must complete a ScholarOne personal profile before they can be included in the submission. This personal profile is where information regarding any and all external funding is identified. SGIM will contact each presenter disclosing commercial external funding in order to resolve all conflicts of interest. CME credit will be withheld from sessions presented by those whose conflicts of interest cannot be resolved. Disclosure information is provided by SGIM to attendees in all print and electronic meeting materials. Speakers with commercial funds supporting their submission are required to disclose that relationship at the beginning of their session.
