The ABIM Foundation is a not-for-profit foundation established by the American Board of Internal Medicine in 1999. Our mission is to improve health care through the advancement of medical professionalism.

We view our work as an ongoing conversation, with a diverse array of individuals and organizations, to continually define medical professionalism so that it is a vital force in our collective efforts to improve quality health care for all. 

Through this website, we invite you to learn more about us and our initiatives, join the medical professionalism discussion through our blog, and share your tools and resources with others who are working to build an equitable, affordable and high quality health care system. 

Welcome to the conversation.
