Who We Are

Our mission is to advance medical professionalism to improve health care.

Created by the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) in 1989, the ABIM Foundation is an operating charity that develops and implements projects in support of its mission to advance the core values of medical professionalism as a force to improve the quality of health care. 

We are dedicated to exploring how physician leaders, health care organizations and public policy can foster medical professionalism and intrinsic motivation at all levels as a means to improve health care for everyone.
