Alliance Research Surveys Schedule

Alliance Research Surveys

With oversight from volunteer committees, the Alliance conducts annual, semiannual, and biannual research surveys of its membership. Survey audiences include, for example, internal medicine (IM) residency program directors, residency and fellowship program administrators, core clerkship, sub-internship, and site directors, and clerkship administrators at medical schools and teaching hospital sites. Additionally, Alliance volunteer groups such as committees, task forces, and other bodies conduct periodic research surveys with technical support from Alliance Surveys staff as needed. 

Research survey results are used to help professionals in IM undergraduate and graduate medical education better understand and advance their profession by 1. informing organizational policies and initiatives, 2. publishing the results in scholarly journals, and 3. presenting those results at professional conferences. For more information (including select summary results and presentations) about specific surveys, please visit the APDIM, CDIM, and Other AAIM Surveys pages linked to in the left-hand sidebar.

The following schedule presents recently completed and upcoming Alliance research surveys. Please check back periodically to track the status of those surveys and for updates on availability of their results.
