Duke GIM is #ProudToBeGIM

Wednesday, October 24, 2018

Duke GIM is proud to announce we were chosen as a recipient of the Society of General Internal Medicine's (SGIM) #ProudToBeGIM grant; a campaign aimed at bringing more medical students and residents into the cadre of general internal medicine physicians.

To have greater impact, the team led by DGIM Assistant Professor of Medicine, Patrick Hemming, MD, came up with the idea to collaborate with the University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill division of General Internal Medicine. 

This #ProudToBeGIM project will have two separate but related components: community volunteerism and professional development. Hemming and his group, as advocates for general medicine, plan to build a networking event between the two institutions, its trainees and faculty. It will include a professional development panel and group discussion highlighting different career paths in academic and community practice. Attendees can expect a round-table on various aspects of careers in GIM, including information about GIM fellowships, reflections on work-life balance, and different career tracks. 

We anticipate these events in the early spring of 2019 and will keep you updated with more information as we have it!
