The Internal Medicine Interest Group (IMIG) at Lincoln Memorial
University-DeBusk College of Osteopathic Medicine (LMU-DCOM) was
one of the first interest groups formed when the school opened its
doors in the fall of 2007. As the school continues to expand, the
IMIG is finding that it is one of the first groups to experience
this growth with increasing numbers joining throughout the year.
Current numbers reveal that 69 students are active in the IMIG at
LMU-DCOM, with even more active with both the American College of
Physicians (ACP) and the American College of Osteopathic Internists
(ACOI). As of right now, we are recruiting more than 30% of the
incoming classes with an increasing number of current second,
third, and fourth years joining as well. In fact, a large number of
the graduating class of 2011 will be filling positions in internal
medicine residencies across the United States.
As a new club in a new school, the IMIG was limited in expanding
the leadership board beyond its current president, vice president,
secretary, and treasurer. However, with the school celebrating the
graduation of its first class, the class of 2011, new opportunities
are opening not only to LMU-DCOM, but to the IMIG as well. For
example, now that the school has a class in all four years, the
IMIG is hoping to incorporate a third and fourth year
representative to help further the opportunities presented to the
We are still learning how to improve the IMIG, and meet the
needs of not only the students, but the faculty, the school, the
community, and even the state as a whole. We are working on
building connections with the surrounding communities, and one way
we do that is through volunteering. Each year, the IMIG volunteers
time and finances to help with projects throughout the community.
This year, LMU-DCOM IMIG is providing groceries to a family that
has been devastated by the economy. We will also be teaming up with
a family in the community to provide them with a hot, homemade meal
at least once a week. In addition, we will also be teaming up with
a local church to help other families in need with home repairs,
including building ramps for the disabled. In all we do, no matter
what it is, our fellow students and faculty always give 100 percent
of their time, energy, and resources to help reach out to the
All of the faculty board certified in internal medicine are very
helpful, and they all encourage us to come spend time with them in
their clinical practice. Whether it is via a rotation in the third
or fourth year, or to job shadow them, they want us to experience
what it is like to be an internist. Likewise, ACP has been quite
helpful in helping LMU-DCOM IMIG get on its feet. ACP has provided
us with pins, finances, and amazing advice to help better the IMIG
at LMU-DCOM. We are still learning and growing, and that is the key
to the continual growth of the program, meeting not only the needs
of the students, but that of the faculty, the school, and the
community as well.
