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?
