Membership

The Society to Improve Diagnosis in Medicine (SIDM) is the only organization focused exclusively on battling the biggest source of patient harm: diagnostic errors. Membership in the Society means you care about ensuring that every patient gets the right diagnosis in a timely fashion.

Benefits of Membership

  • Support our efforts to improve the quality of the diagnostic process and save thousands of lives every year. Your membership allows us to continue outreach, dialogue, research and education.
  • Only members gain free access to DIAGNOSIS, SIDM’s Official Peer-Reviewed Journal published by DeGruyter (a $149 value).
  • Only members gain free access to the presentations of our DEM conferences beyond 60 days of the conference.
  • Only members are eligible to participate in the committees of their choice and help influence improvements in Medical Education, Patient Engagement, Policy, Practice Improvement, and Research.
  • Your membership fee and all donations are tax-deductible. SIDM is a 501c3 non-profit organization.
  • Members automatically receive ImproveDx, our bimonthly newsletter.
  • Members can subscribe to our Listserv and join the conversation. Listserv participants – physicians, researchers, patients, patient advocates, and healthcare providers – are part of an ongoing and robust email discussion, interaction and professional collaboration on topics relevant to diagnostic error in medicine.

Your membership allows SIDM to continue at its astonishing pace. In just a few years we have gone global with our conferences and membership; we were the driving force behind the National Academy of Medicine’s 2015 landmark report “Improving Diagnosis in Healthcare;” we convened the Coalition to Improve Diagnosis which currently has more 30 members; and so much more.

If you aren’t interested in joining SIDM you can still donate to support this important work.
