The Internal Medicine Interest Group (IMIG) at Sanford School of
Medicine at the University of South Dakota has been revitalized
since the start of the 2007-2008 academic year. Since then our
group has been progressively strengthened, and every year has had
an ACP membership of greater than 50% of the medical school student
body. Our current leadership is set up as a steering committee with
a President and two representatives from each class. We have found
that this continuity of representation in each class is crucial to
the continuing strength and high membership of our IMIG. All it
takes is one class without representation, and membership levels
and interest drop. This is what occurred prior to our 2007
membership resurgence, and we are consistently making recruiting
representatives from incoming classes the number one priority.
Our group hosts at least one IM interest meeting every semester
with physicians representing general IM and IM subspecialties from
areas of interest selected by the participating medical students.
We also are actively involved in other projects such as 2M,
"Muscles to Move". 2M, at its core, is designed to help patients
feel empowered, and "help them help themselves" through exercise.
Another goal of 2M is to record data from certain research cohorts
to evaluate the actual clinical and physical ramifications of this
project. Efforts are currently underway to publish this data -
another exciting outgrowth of our IMIG experience. We hope that
these data will not only help us to continue to improve upon the
program, but encourage other states to develop their own unique

experience for the students, but it sent a powerful message to our
