N1 - Funding Information: Since its founding, the ASP has been involved in advocating for academic subspecialty internal medicine. Under the guidance of the ASP Advocacy Committee, the organization has branched out from its original focus of securing federal funding for fellowship education (still a significant effort) to include advocacy for funding for health research, loosening restrictions on federal funding for stem cell research, and securing the future of research in the Department of Veterans Affairs. The ASP Education Committee has contributed greatly to advocacy with the “regulators” of subspecialty education, notably the Residency Review Committee for Internal Medicine, the ACGME, and the American Board of Internal Medicine. Through these efforts, the ASP has helped secure additional funding for medical research, improved the process and requirements for fellowship accreditation, and raised the profile of the subspecialty community with legislators and regulators.
