Choosing Wisely is a national campaign developed by the ABIM Foundation to help physicians and patients discuss medical tests and procedures that medical groups say are not needed, overused or, in some cases, harmful.

ICSI, the Minnesota Medical Association and the Minnesota Action Group are spreading this campaign as Choosing Wisely Minnesota.
