Mayo Medical School's Internal Medicine Interest Group has been
active continuously since 2002. Our group serves students
throughout all four years of medical school with student leaders
from each class. Student leaders will often continue involvement
over several years, and long-term participation in this manner
allows close collaboration between students and continuity of
involvement on larger-scale initiatives.
Our IMIG reaches out to students early in their first year
beginning with representation at our activity fair and a fall
social event. Throughout the year we offer regular IM
specialty-focused monthly lunch panels with distinguished faculty
and residents as part of an ongoing series. Recent meetings have
focused on General Internal Medicine and Cardiology, and an
upcoming meeting will focus on developing the characteristics of
successful applicants to IM residencies based on the most recent
match. Attendance is usually in the range of 40-50 students,
representing roughly half of each of the first and second year
In the first two years, our school's curriculum incorporates
two-week "selective" experiences. This allows students to explore
their personal career interests during these periods by
participating in pre-organized selectives or creating their own.
Our IMIG can help students explore Internal Medicine early on by
creating and supporting selectives in IM specialties and
coordinating with individual students to create personalized
selectives in IM. As students progress through medical school in
the third and fourth years, our IMIG assists in matching them with
appropriate research and career mentors by maintaining an updated
and accessible database of interested mentors and projects. We
regularly assess and respond to the changing needs of our students
through student surveys following each IMIG-sponsored event or
selective experience. These surveys solicit feedback on our
successes, ways to improve, and suggestions for future experiences.
The results from these surveys are compiled and included in a
report written by the student leader coordinating each meeting or
selective, which is then used to guide upcoming activities. These
systems for feedback and reflection support innovation, adaption,
and continual improvement in the services our IMIG offers.
Our funding is primarily from the generous support of the
Department of Medicine, We are also very grateful for the funding
we receive from the ACP for our annual Crawfish Boil, which brings
a little southern living to the tundra of Minnesota. We share our
annual progress and future goals each year at the Minnesota ACP
spring council meeting, which has been a wonderful opportunity to
receive feedback on our work and develop relationships with ACP
members who want to be involved with medical students, and we also
participate each year in the ACP-sponsored Minnesota Internal
Medicine Residency Recruitment event.
One of the major priorities of the Mayo Medical School IM
Interest Group is to continue facilitating the development of
professional and social relationships with students and faculty at
neighboring medical schools. Towards this goal we recently
participated in a networking event for students and IM faculty
hosted by the University of Minnesota- Twin Cities, and we are
working closely with their leadership to create several jointly
sponsored annual events between our schools beginning in the fall
The 2009-2010 academic year was an especially successful one for
our IMIG and we are excited to see what the next year will bring.
We would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to our dedicated
advisor Dr. Jaime Newman, who acts as a personal mentor to many
medical students in addition to helping guide and implement the
student leadership's vision each year. We would also like to thank
the Mayo Clinic Department of Medicine and the Minnesota Chapter of
the ACP for their continuing support as we strive to continually
improve our efforts to recruit and support students interested in
Internal Medicine. We welcome any comments, suggestions, or new
