  • Refer to the ACP toolkit on advocating for credentialing applications that do not ask about mental health. 
  • Self care is self preservation. 

The conversation continues on Twitter with the #PTBGIM. For this episode, be sure to tag @theDEIShift.. Tell us why you’re #ProudToBeGIM and share your perspectives, experiences, or tips on how becoming a physician advocate is a valuable skillset as a general internal medicine specialist.

#ProudtobeGIM is a campaign from the Society of General Internal Medicine and the American College of Physicians aimed at encouraging medical students and residents to pursue General Internal Medicine.
