International Journal of Academic Medicine


The COVID-19 pandemic has been especially challenging to the academic international medical (AIM) community. The impact on the field of clinical medicine has been the most pronounced, particularly in the way that education is provided and academic medicine is pursued by clinicians. With the goal of providing top quality, highly relevant content for our membership, the American College of Academic International Medicine (ACAIM) teamed up with our sister organizations, the World Academic Congress of Emergency Medicine (WACEM), the Global Research on Acute conditions Team (GREAT, Rome, Italy and Basel, Switzerland), and EMA-INDIA (Indirapuram, India). The goal of this truly global coalition was to jointly host weekly web meetings that focus on topics relevant to participating stakeholder communities, with additional focus on the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Summary of these efforts and outcomes is provided in this article.
