Sponsoring Organizations

American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM): Since its founding in 1936 to answer a public call to establish more uniform standards for physicians, certification by the ABIM has stood for the highest standard in internal medicine and its 21 subspecialties. Certification has meant that internists have demonstrated – to their peers and to the public – that they have the clinical judgment, skills and attitudes essential for the delivery of excellent patient care. ABIM is not a membership society, but a physician-led, non-profit, independent evaluation organization. Our accountability is both to the profession of medicine and to the public.

ABIM Foundation: The ABIM Foundation’s mission is to advance medical professionalism to improve the health care system by collaborating with physicians and physician leaders, medical trainees, health care delivery systems, payers, policymakers, consumer organizations and patients to foster a shared understanding of professionalism and how they can adopt the tenets of professionalism in practice. 

Alliance for Academic Internal Medicine (AAIM): The Alliance for Academic Internal Medicine promotes the advancement and professional development of its members who prepare the next generation of internal medicine physicians and leaders through education, research, engagement, and collaboration.

American College of Physicians (ACP): The American College of Physicians (ACP) is a diverse community of internal medicine specialists and subspecialists united by a commitment to excellence. With 161,000 members in countries across the globe, ACP is the largest medical-specialty society in the world. ACP and its physician members lead the profession in education, standard-setting, and the sharing of knowledge to advance the science and practice of internal medicine.

Josiah H. Macy Foundation: Founded in 1930 by Kate Macy Ladd in memory of her father, the Josiah Macy Jr. Foundation is the only national foundation dedicated solely to improving the education of health professionals. The foundation’s guiding principle is that health professional education has at its core a strong social mission: to serve the public’s needs and improve the health of the public. The Josiah Macy Jr. Foundation fosters innovation in clinical learning environments by investing in projects which promote diversity, equity, and belonging, increase interprofessional collaboration, and prepare future health professionals to navigate ethical dilemmas.
