Choosing Wisely is an initiative of the ABIM Foundation that seeks to advance a national dialogue on avoiding unnecessary medical tests, treatments and procedures. Read more about the campaign.

During this time of great stress, Choosing Wisely is providing information from our partner societies about appropriate tests and treatments that are relevant to addressing the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak on the health care system

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.
