National Internal Medicine Day is Oct. 28

Dr. Dinesh Bande, clinical professor and chair of UND’s Department of Internal Medicine, and the Department of Internal Medicine wish everyone a Happy National Internal Medicine Day on Wednesday, Oct. 28.

The American College of Physicians (ACP) has officially established National Internal Medicine Day, which hereafter will be celebrated on Oct. 28 each year. This day recognizes internal medicine specialists and subspecialists who are united by a commitment to excellence and who make a difference in the lives of their patients every day.

Thank you, everyone (especially IM faculty and residents), for your contributions to the Department of Internal Medicine and the UND School of Medicine & Health Sciences.

Please help ACP share the news about National Internal Medicine Day with your colleagues and encourage them to celebrate internal medicine and internists by:

  • Flooding the Internet with internal medicine pride: recognize a colleague, thank a mentor, or tell your story.
  • Use the official hashtags—#NationalInternalMedicineDay, #IMProud, #IMEssential—in your social media posts.
