In December 2015, AAIM sought to assess how common it is for internal medicine subspecialties to offer positions outside of the match. To answer this question, the Alliance polled 2015 subspecialty match participants with two questions: to which subspecialty did you apply and were you offered any positions outside of the match?

On October 11, 2015, AAIM convened all subspecialties so they could learn from one another in a forum of open discussion with no preconceived end results. A key attribute of this summit is that each subspecialty society have representation at the meeting.
The topic of this summit is the subspecialty match and in particular the pros and cons of NRMP's “all in” policy. We will also discuss the proposed uniform start date for subspecialty fellows. Those in attendance are expected to represent their specialty interests, participate openly in the discussion(s) and to disseminate the outcomes of the summit to their stakeholders.
