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.
