Looking for ways to improve your club’s activities, or want to share your ideas with other IMIG Leaders? Check out the links below:

Contact your local ACP Chapter
Each chapter functions a little differently, but many chapters offer programs and activities such as meetings and networking opportunities, community-based teaching programs, and public policy initiatives. Your chapter may be able to aid you in planning activities or finding speaking for events.

Contact your Council of Student Members (CSM) Representative
The CSM is responsible for planning programs for the annual meeting for medical students and providing a student perspective on current issues impacting the field of internal medicine.

Internal Medicine Interest Group Resource Guide
Developed by the Council of Student Members, this guide will provide practical information about how to set up an IMIG, best practices for your IMIG, and ideas for activities and events. New to this edition are sections on how to establish a journal club and how to hold a residency fair at your school.

Submit your club as IMIG of the Month
Do you think your IMIG has what it takes to be featured as the "Internal Medicine Interest Group of the Month" in an upcoming issue of IMpact? Does your club host unique and interesting events about internal medicine? Does your IMIG have a strong presence on your campus? ACP wants to hear about your club!

The early-bird IMIG Sponsorship Program application will be available online from March 15 to June 1 at www.acponline.org/imigapp. Apply early to receive funding and recruitment materials for your club over the summer, before new student orientation!
