SRF Programming

Student, Resident, Fellow Programming

The Annual Meeting includes a series of sessions designed for those of you in various stages of transition from medical student to practicing physician and/or faculty member. While the educational sessions are an extremely important component of attending an SGIM meeting, we also recognize how much you will gain from a number of networking and social events planned specifically for Students, Residents, and Fellows.

The One-on-One Mentoring Program is highly recommended! Connecting with a mentor can help you get the most out of the current meeting. This program can help provide you with a contact outside your own institution who can give you very useful career advice. Many long-time SGIM members are eager and willing to share their expertise with you!

The SRF Mentoring Panel offers another opportunity for students, residents, and fellows attending the SGIM Annual Meeting to access mentors and have their questions answered on issues around practicing general internal medicine.

  • Why should I consider general internal medicine as a “specialty”?
  • How do you pursue careers in medical education, research, leadership or clinical medicine as a general internist? 
  • Who does a general internal medicine fellowship?
  • How do I achieve work-life balance in IM?
