Fellowship programs in general internal medicine should be designed to train outstanding academic internists to serve as future faculty and leaders in the field. Although programs may vary widely in their specific components, all should share a number of characteristics and goals. In this document, the Society of General Internal Medicine outlines basic principles and guidelines for fellowship training, states that its own PCIM Directory will explicitly require that programs indicate how they conform to them, and indicates its interest in considering a formal fellowship accreditation process in the future.
