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

Selected institutions will receive a $2,000 honorarium to host one or more local events aimed at encouraging medical students and early residents to enter the field.


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

Selected institutions will receive a $2,000 honorarium to host one or more local events aimed at encouraging medical students and early residents to enter the field. ACP and SGIM are partnering for the second year in a row to broaden the scope of the campaign and encourage institutions to work alongside ACP chapters. The goal is to bring education about the field of general internal medicine to more 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 complete a grant application, visit the program website. The application deadline is Sept. 20 at 5:00 p.m. ET. For inquiries about hosting an event, visit SGIM's website.
