Family Medicine Interest Group

The Family Medicine Interest Group (FMIG)

The FMIG is a student run group, which sponsors activities for the medical students in conjunction with the Family Medicine faculty and residency program. They have a planned program of activities including education forums, dinners, and outreach.  Many students use these alliances to find mentors and to shadow physicians in their office. The participating students learn not only about careers in family medicine, but also about the medical profession in general. The student leadership has an opportunity to attend the annual American Academy of Family Physicians conference for residents and medical students.
