Residents Show SGIM the Iowa Way

Members of the Internal Medicine Residency Program delivered presentations at the most recent meeting of the Society of General Internal Medicine (SGIM), including Dr. Matthew McGee, who took first place in the Clinical Vignette Oral Presentation competition. SGIM holds seven regional meetings around the country throughout the year and last month’s Mid-West Regional Meeting in Chicago drew members from thirteen states including Iowa. The meetings provide participants the chance to network and share research, clinical skills, and take advantage of leadership opportunities.

Thanks to the generosity of the Division of General Internal Medicine, nine Iowa residents received financial assistance to attend the two-day Chicago event. With the guidance and mentorship of faculty members the following residents also successfully submitted abstracts for presentation at the event. Congratulations to all involved and our thanks to those faculty members who have made communicating results a part of their educational mission.
