With one of the largest enrollments in the nation, Drexel
University College of Medicine proudly graduates more than 250
students each year, including as many as 66 students who matched in
internal medicine in 2011. The school's Internal Medicine Interest
Group consistently boasts high student participation, which we hope
contributes to students' early and continued interest in pursuing a
career in internal medicine.
The interest group is organized by student leaders, Farah
Noorani, Neha Sirohi, and Daniel Wahl, all of whom are third-year
medical students and aspiring internal medicine residents. We are
honored to have Dr. Amy Fuchs, Associate Dean of Student Affairs,
the internal medicine pathway director, and a practicing infectious
disease specialist, as our academic advisor. Not only has Dr. Fuchs
supported us in planning our organization's major events, but she
has also helped us network with internists and subspecialists to
promote shadowing opportunities and mentor the members of the
The interest group is proud to sponsor four major events each
year. As the school year commences, we host a booth and poster
presentation along with a medicine trivia game at the fall
activities fair. Each year we are joined by ACP Representative John
Derrickson. Mr. Derrickson assists us in recruiting students to our
interest group and educates them on the benefits of ACP student
Priyanka Teckchandani, Anand Kumar, David A. Bernstein, MD
(IMIG Advisor), & Jonathan Richina at Drexel's 2012 activities
With his help, 32% of Drexel University medical students now
possess an ACP Membership, with a total of 323 students as of last
December. This past fall, our physician question and answer panel
drew more than 100 first- and second-year students in attendance.
From lifestyle to day-to-day patient care scenarios, the students
are provided a solid overview of what internal medicine and its
subspecialties have to offer. As students ponder over which field
is the right choice, we offer a mentor-mentee dinner, during which
they can meet a mentor one-on-one from any division of the
Department of Medicine. Each student has the opportunity to delve
deeper into the specialties of their choice. Finally, to celebrate
our newly matched fourth-year students' success, we host a
post-match question and answer session each spring. From discussing
personal experiences that drove them to pursue Internal Medicine to
extracurricular activities and research that made them stronger
applicants, the fourth-year students share any and all advice. Our
annual goal is to provide students with access to firsthand
knowledge about internal medicine as a career, and we achieve it
with the variety of events offered.
Hands-on experience always leaves a bigger impression than the
information students hear at meetings. With this in mind, the
interest group also offers a year-long shadowing program to allow
students to experience the day-to-day schedule of an internal
medicine physician. In this program students experience the depth
and breadth of internal internal medicine and its specialties. Five
to ten students participate each week and gain exposure to patient
encounters and invasive procedures they may not otherwise
experience until their clinical years.
From clinical exposure in the shadowing program to information
sessions and one-on-one physician mentoring, the Drexel University
College of Medicine Internal Medicine Interest Group provides
pre-clinical medical students with resources to develop their
knowledge of a future in internal medicine.
