The Family Medicine Interest Group

Dear friends,

Thank you for your interest in the Family Medicine Interest Group (FMIG) at the Quillen College of Medicine. FMIG provides students with many opportunities to increase their interest in Family Medicine. Because of the emphasis and support for primary care at Quillen, all students are considered members and are able to participate in as many events as they wish. Activities include noon-hour luncheon lectures, evening workshops (e.g. alternative/complementary medicine, splinting/casting, sports medicine), social events, and Community Engagement Projects.
The Community Engagement Projects are an integral part of the FMIG culture. Projects include teaching kids about what to expect at the doctor's office, nutrition initiatives, a community garden, Tar Wars – an anti-smoking curriculum, fitness programs, introduction to anatomy for elementary students, and shadowing and volunteer opportunities at free and traveling clinics. Whether you are interested in family medicine or not, FMIG would LOVE to have your help in serving our community!
If you would like to become more involved, please check out our Facebook page, QCOM Family Medicine Interest Group for listings of our events. Also, feel free to contact me by email for more information. Thank you for your consideration and interest in Family Medicine!
