The Internal Medicine Interest Group at Texas A&M Health
Science Center is one of the largest interest groups on campus that
sponsors an array of events from informational gatherings to skills
workshops. The goal of the interest group is to create a collegial
environment in which students can investigate and further pursue
their interests in the different areas of internal medicine.
Throughout the year, our group holds several informational
meetings, inviting local physicians to speak to students about
their area of expertise and offer guidance for students as they
begin their medical careers. Meetings focus on the role of internal
medicine has as the foundation for adult primary care and a gateway
to other subspecialties. Physicians address disparities in
medicine, the needs of our current national medical society, as
well as the different settings of practice. This year our interest
group also held a doctor panel dinner, with over one hundred
students attending that was broadcasted between our two campuses in
College Station and Temple, Texas. The panel was composed of a
general internist, an oncologist, rheumatologist, pulmonologist,
cardiologist, endocrinologist, gastroenterologist, and neurologist.
Each physician shared their experiences and reasons for going into
internal medicine, and they interacted with the students, answering
questions and discussing opportunities for shadowing and
The interest group has also emphasized the importance of
inter-professional relationships amongst students, local
physicians, and other health care professional students. One of our
most exciting events this year was the internal medicine skills
workshop which offered first and second year students the
opportunity to gain insight into skills they will be exposed to on
their internal medicine clinical rotations. Our on-campus
simulation center, fully equipped with hospital rooms and clinical
mannequins, was set up into several stations. A local cardiologist
guided students through identifying heart sounds and murmurs on our
cardiac mannequin "Harvey," while fourth years taught proper
procedures for surgical scrub and gown at the surgical station.
Volunteer standardized patients were given scripts to act out for
the students to practice their history and physical exam skills,
while third and fourth year medical students helped them to create
differential diagnoses. Texas A&M nursing students volunteered
and helped students perform proper phlebotomy procedures, and
showed them how to properly insert nasogastric tubing and foley
The interest group also holds community fundraisers, to support
costs so that more students can attend the national ACP Internal
Medicine meeting each year, and encourages students to participate
in summer internal medicine programs.
This month our interest group volunteered in our community
"health hullabaloo." We sponsored a booth on diabetes, educating
the community on myths and facts of diabetes and offering tips for
prevention and maintenance. We also offered vouchers for free
health screenings and through sugar cubes we displayed the amount
of sugar in commonly consumed foods.
