Host a ‘#ProudtobeGIM’ event, apply for grant funding

Institutions can receive an honorarium of $2,000 to host one or more local events aimed at encouraging medical students and early residents to enter internal medicine.


ACP is partnering with the Society of General Internal Medicine (SGIM) on #ProudtobeGIM, a nationwide campaign to introduce medical students and PGY 1-2 residents to the field of general internal medicine.

Selected institutions will receive an honorarium in the amount of $2,000 to host one or more local events aimed at encouraging medical students and early residents to enter the field. ACP is partnering with SGIM this year in order to broaden the scope of the campaign and encourage institutions to partner with ACP chapters and bring education about the field of general internal medicine to even more medical students and residents during the coming year.

Grant applications that include participation of a local ACP chapter and/or an SGIM member on the leadership team will be given preference over those that do not. Preference is also given to applications that show strong institutional support (e.g., matching funds, in-kind support).

For more information and to a complete grant application, visit the program website. The application deadline is Sept. 21, 2018, at 5 p.m. EST. Go online for information on how to host an event.
