Health Equity & Inclusion

American Board of Internal Medicine and ABIM Foundation’s Commitment to Health Equity

Like many organizations across the United States, the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) and ABIM Foundation are at a turning point, where we move from being “passively non-racist” institutions to committing ourselves to be an “actively anti-racist” influence in health care.

In the tumultuous summer of 2020, we made a public commitment to explore our role in perpetuating —intentionally or not— racial disparities in health care through our Board’s policies and programs.

And while our initial commitment in 2020 focused on racial justice, our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) strategy has broadened to bring as many voices to the table as possible, to support the ABIM Foundation’s mission to advance medical professionalism to improve health care.

In an effort to remain transparent and accountable to our community as we do this ongoing work visit to learn what ABIM and the ABIM Foundation have committed to and what we have done thus far to fulfill those commitments.
