Joining a Family Medicine Interest Group (FMIG) during medical school is an excellent way to explore the specialty of family medicine in an informal, educational, and fun setting!
In addition to meeting others interested in family medicine, FMIG members benefit from supplemental programming and information related to primary care that may not be available in medical school curriculum. FMIG members also learn about the history of family medicine and its future, and receive unique opportunities to practice a wide range of clinical skills and procedures important to the patient care that family physicians provide.

Network with Peers & Faculty
