Building Trust is an ABIM Foundation initiative that aims to elevate the importance of trust as an essential organizing principle to guide operations and improvements in health care. We will identify and promote best practices in building trust by collaborating with organizations across various health care sectors. This initiative builds on the Foundation’s open call in 2019 to health care stakeholders to share trust-building practices.
In addition, we are working to promote research on trust topics with AcademyHealth, and to promote trust through enhancing diversity, equity and inclusion in internal medicine education with the Academic Alliance for Internal Medicine and the American College of Physicians.
The ABIM Foundation was created by the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) in 1989. As an operating charity, we develop and implement projects and initiatives like Building Trust in support of our mission to advance the core values of medical professionalism as a force to improve the quality of health care.
