NYACP Co-Sponsored #ProudtoBeGIM Events Bring Together Internal Medicine Physicians

In late February and early March, NYACP worked with Weill Cornell Medicine and Stony Brook Medicine on developing events through the Society of General Internal Medicine’s (SGIM) #ProudtoBeGIM program. The results were two unique events that brought together internal medicine residents and medical students with faculty members to share experiences in medicine and a chance to network with like-minded physicians.

On February 28, Weill Cornell hosted its 2nd Annual Primary Care Innovation Symposium. The symposium featured a keynote presentation from NYACP's Brooklyn/Queens/Staten Island Governor, Parag Mehta, MD, FACP on physician wellness, entitled "Happiness and Living with Purpose."  In addition, there were over 60 resident and medical student posters presented at the afternoon poster session.

On March 6, Stony Brook Medicine hosted a #ProudtobeGIM Story Slam at its hospital, where physicians from internal medicine shared their stories and experiences to the assembled medical students, residents, and undegraduates, with an aim to promote interest and generate discussion among attendees about careers in General Internal Medicine.

There will be one more #ProudtobeGIM event at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mt. Sinai on April 11, 2019.  You can view the flyer here Register here
