Internal Medicine Interest Group of the Month: New Jersey Medical School.
Club Med, the internal medicine interest group at University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, New Jersey Medical School (NJMS), was established only two years ago but continues to be one of the most active and fastest-growing interest groups at NJMS. Over the past year, Club Med has established monthly meetings that seek to address the interests of both clinical and pre-clinical students via a variety of topics, such as “How to Beat the Match,” “What is an Internist?,” “Information on Internal Medicine Specialties,” and “How to Present to an Attending.” We also have one or two teaching rounds each month, called “ATMs: Attendings Teaching Medical Students,” where three or four students meet with an attending or chief resident to observe the more interesting cases that are currently on the floors. This provides students the opportunity to correlate their basic sciences with clinical presentation and to improve their physical diagnosis skills. This past October, Club Med hosted its Second Annual Internal Medicine Residency Fair, attracting residency programs from New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, and Connecticut. We are currently helping to plan a men’s health initiative with local and regional representatives from the American Medical Student Association to address the medical concerns of men in Newark. As a group, Club Med is always trying to improve itself by providing new programs that address the ever-changing needs of our student body. As such, Club Med is currently working with the Department of Medicine in order to create an elective that will familiarize students with the wards before their clinical rotations begin.
