I-18 - Acculturation: Continuous Immersion and Improvement for IMGs
International Medical Graduates face challenges navigating american culture and societal norms when practicing medicine in the United States. These differences influence how IMGs engage with their patients, their colleagues and other members of the care team. Acculturation can help with navigating these differences and empower you with the tools and knowledge needed to navigate American culture and avoid common misunderstandings. Join the AMA- IMG Section to learn about acculturation and resources that are available to help you improve your interactions with others.
