Tell ACP why you're proud to be an internist for a chance to be featured on ACP's website and win one of six I.M. Proud prize packs awarded throughout the year. Visit ACP's website, submit the entry form (login required), and include either a brief essay or a short video letting us know why you're proud to be an internist. Entrants must complete the entry form to be eligible.

Participants are asked to submit a response to one of the following questions:

  • What makes you proud to practice internal medicine or a subspecialty of internal medicine?
  • What recent patient experience made you proud to be an internist or subspecialist, and why?
  • How is practicing internal medicine, or an internal medicine subspecialty, unique from other specialties?

The I.M. Proud contest is open to ACP members only. Submissions will be judged by a team of ACP staff, and one winner in each category (essay and video) will be announced on Oct. 28, 2019; Feb. 28, 2020; and June 28, 2020. Winners will receive an I.M. Proud prize pack and be featured on the ACP website. The prize pack includes an I.M Proud coffee mug, pen, and button and a miniature Bluetooth speaker. Nonwinning submissions may also be published online. The contest runs through June 5, 2020.
