National Volunteer Month

National Volunteer Month

The Alliance for Academic Internal Medicine (AAIM) joins other organizations across the United States and Canada in celebrating National Volunteer Month during the month of April. It is a month dedicated to promoting and celebrating volunteerism.

Alliance volunteers are part of a special group of members who provide leadership and lend expertise to ensure the programs and services we deliver meet the critical needs of our academic internal medicine community. Without you, we could not achieve our goals!

Meet the Volunteers

Alliance Recognizes Contributions of Volunteers

During National Volunteer Appreciation Week, the Alliance sends a big thank you to the hundreds of volunteers who provide leadership and expertise to the Alliance each year to help meet the critical needs of our academic internal medicine community. Volunteerism empowers individuals to find their purpose, harness their passion, and turn it into meaningful change. When you answer the call to participate, you bring influence that has impact, and allows the Alliance to make progress toward building a stronger community. Without volunteers, the Alliance could not achieve our goals! 

There are many ways to get involved with the Alliance to advance your career and your profession. Here are a just a few illustrations of recent projects that AAIM volunteers worked on:

  • AAIM staff along with volunteers on research and survey committees fielded seven surveys, to 2,389 members over the last eight months. Members can view survey results on the IM.org website and are invited to attended volunteer-lead survey results webinars in May.
  • Seven program planning committees provided assistance to Alliance staff in planning more than 130 hours of educational content for the AAIM Online 2021 conference held this month.
  • The CDIM Curriculum Task Force and 39 contributing authors worked with AAIM staff to publish the fourth edition of the CDIM Core Medicine Clerkship Curriculum Guide earlier this year. The task force also hosted a webinar to showcase the new content in the curriculum guide.
  • Health Disparities Toolkit, curated by the AAIM Health Disparities Collaborative Learning Community, is a collection of resources and teaching tools to help instructors create curriculum for the spectrum of medical learners, UME to GME.
