We all recognize that this is a challenging time in medicine. This is a rapidly evolving situation that requires reevaluation daily. We recommend following the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for the most up-to-date information on the virus.
We commend your commitment to Medical Professionalism and continuing to provide quality health care to those in need while navigating the obstacles that COVID-19 has brought to our health systems.
Supporting Frontline Physicians through #GetUsPPE
As part of our support for the internal medicine community, the American Board of Internal Medicine and the ABIM Foundation have each contributed funds to #GetUsPPE to facilitate the delivery of more than 50,000 pieces of personal protective equipment (PPE) to frontline physicians. This grassroots movement founded by emergency physicians is the largest coalition of PPE donor projects and seeks to ensure that as many medical professionals as possible have the equipment they need to protect themselves and their patients. We’re all trying to find ways we can help, no matter how big or small. If you or your organization are looking for ways to get involved, check out #GetUsPPE’s website.
