Governance Openings

Participating in ABIM governance provides a meaningful and rewarding opportunity to join outstanding professional colleagues in service to our patients.

Governance members help define breadth of knowledge of the Board certified internists or subspecialist, provide perspective on trends and scope of their discipline and collaborate with peers to develop the fairest and most up-to-date assessments possible.

If you have a genuine interest in professional development and standard setting for internal medicine and its subspecialties, please consider sharing this site with a colleague or applying yourself to be appointed to an ABIM board or committee.

ABIM strongly encourages candidates from groups under-represented in medicine, as well as physicians who practice in smaller communities or safety-net institutions.
