The Academic International Medicine World Congress (the AIM World Congress) is the official annual meeting of the American College of Academic International Medicine, a United States organization dedicated specifically to connecting academic physicians from diverse areas of expertise toward the common goals of sustainable global medical outreach and multinational clinical research and education. The organization's main focus is to promote academic international medicine and to establish a platform for individuals, academic institutions, and a broad range of multisectoral organizations to converge and work collectively to create a foundation for efficient, effective, and sustainable resource sharing. World-renowned experts and speakers from the AIM community attended and participated in the Third Annual Congress (AIM 2018) held in Brooklyn, New York, from July 27 to July 29, 2018.
