In This Month's Issue


SGIM’s physician leaders continue to pave a pathway for the academic general medicine community to evolve and make societal progress together. Monica Lypson, SGIM president, reflects on SGIM engagement as a pathway towards addressing collective burnout. Eric Bass, SGIM CEO, provides a vital update on recommendations from a National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine report on high-quality primary care. Physician-educators Orr, et al, and Achuonjei, et al, describe interprofessional educational programs for learners of different disciplinary backgrounds, aiming also to deliver virtual team care during the COVID-19 pandemic. Physician informaticians Hernandez, et al, describe a unique pathway for residents to develop expertise as clinical informatics scholars. Physician-mother and fellow Mahrer Owen reflects on receiving her COVID-19 vaccination during pregnancy. In the spirit of SGIM Forum’s March theme issue on climate change and health, physician-advocates Balaban, et al, offer a reminder of physicians’ roles in environmental and climate health advocacy, especially in combination with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, to advance population and public health.
