Students Organization

Family Medicine Interest Group (FMIG)
 

The PSM Family Medicine Interest Group (FMIG) is a student-run organization with rotating leadership from members of the MS2 class each year. The Department of Family Medicine & Community Medicine provides support for the group including the assignment of a faculty advisor, Dr. Francisco Torres Lozada.

The group holds a number of meetings each year focused on issues relating to Family Medicine. It gives students with a common interest an opportunity to consider topics such as, "What is Family Medicine", "Balancing a Career and Family in Medicine", and "Which Primary Care Discipline is For Me?"

Look in the Bulletin Board for a listing of upcoming FMIG activities.

The FMIG is a national organization and you will want to check out the Virtual Family Medicine Interest Group Web site Virtual FMIG is an online resource designed to provide information that is relevant at Modeled after successful campus Family Medicine Interest Groups (FMIGs).
