2023 Midwest Society of General Internal Medicine conference

This past weekend, from October 19-20, 2023, the Department of Internal Medicine’s residents presented posters in Chicago, IL, at the annual Midwest Society of General Internal Medicine (SGIM) conference. SGIM’s mission is to “cultivate innovative educators, researchers, and clinicians in academic general internal medicine, leading the way to better health for everyone.”

Under this year’s theme of Moving Forward: Catalyzing Change in Research, Education, Patient Care, and Equity, two Internal Medicine resident quality improvement (QI) teams presented posters on penicillin allergy de-labeling (presented by Madalyn Walsh, MD, and Adi Ravindra, MD) and improving end-of-visit communication (presented by Alice Xu, MD). One vignette poster, presented by Sruti Prathivadi-Bhayankaram, MD, focused on COVID-induced myopathy presentation.

Under the mentorship of General Internal Medicine faculty, these representatives of University of Iowa Health Care delivered visually appealing posters, and deftly walked poster session attendees through their projects and cases. Congratulations to the presenting teams on a successful regional presentation!
