University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine Internal Medicine Interest Group
The mission of the University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine Internal Medicine Interest Group (CCOM IMIG) is to increase awareness and interest in internal medicine among medical students. We are a local chapter of the American College of Physicians (ACP), which is a national organization of physicians specializing in the prevention, detection and treatment of illnesses in adults. ACP is the largest medical-specialty organization and second-largest physician group in the United States with a membership of over 133,000 internists, internal medicine subspecialists, fellows, residents, and medical students.
The ACP website can be accessed at: www.acponline.org.
If you are medical student, please consider applying for a free student membership at: http://www.acponline.org/membership/join/students/
Our local IMIG chapter also has a website, which can be accessed at: http://www.int-med.uiowa.edu/Education/MasterClinician/Students.html
Dr. Joseph Szot, a general internist, and Dr. Manish Suneja, a nephrologist, serve as advisors to CCOM IMIG, and help the student leadership team plan monthly meetings for the medical student community. Drs. Szot and Suneja are Associate Directors of the Internal Medicine Residency Program at UIHC and thus have extensive experience in evaluating and advising students interested in pursuing internal medicine residency programs. Both of them look forward to meeting and mentoring students interested in internal medicine! Through our local IMIG website, you can also look for UIHC faculty who are open to mentoring medical students.
