Internal Medicine Interest Group Update

The 2010-2011 IMIG recruitment period closed at the end of December, with 42 schools reaching the 30% participation goal for Student Membership. The 135 medicals schools with an ACP sponsored IMIG program recruited a total of 2,873 new student membersand an additional 1,713 student members were recruited at schools without an IMIG program.

Those schools with over 30% Student Membership receive $2 per Student Member, and those less than 30% receive $1 per Student Member for a maximum of $1000 in sponsorship, including the initial $200 sponsorship each group received in the fall.
