This year the theme of the Internal Medicine Interest Group
(IMIG) at the Keck School of Medicine of USC has been
collaboration. Forging new ties with our campus Primary Care
Community Medicine Student Coalition (PCCMSC) and the Southern
California ACP Chapter Council of Student Members has provided us
with many fresh ideas and the manpower to put them into action. We
have also held several joint events with other student interest
groups. IMIG has historically had a large voice on campus, but
partnering with different groups has given us additional enthusiasm
and enabled us to bring new experiences to our members.
Founded this year, PCCMSC is advised by Yvonne Banzali, Program
Coordinator for the Keck-USC Primary Care Community Medicine
Program. The coalition consists of the most active members of
student interest groups in family medicine, pediatrics, med-peds,
obstetrics and gynecology, and public health. One of the many
events we participated in through PCCMSC was the Bravo Health Fair,
designed to provide high school students and their families with a
wide variety of health services and information. We set up a booth
for asthma screening and education. Our booth included an
informative poster board presentation, pamphlets from the American
Asthma Foundation, and even asthma comics for the teens. Many young
students and their concerned parents approached us, eager to learn
about the pathophysiology of the disease. We helped plan several
other events through PCCMSC as well, including a Primary Care
Panel, which brought together individuals from various fields in
primary care to discuss their unique experiences, an International
Medicine Panel, which focused on the incredible stories of
physicians who have practiced medicine in various parts of the
world, and the Keck-USC and Charles Drew University Primary Care
Week and the Community Medicine & Public Health Lecture Series,
PCCMSC's biggest and most celebrated event this year.
While we successfully united forces with groups on the USC
campus, we went further and are now working with UCLA's IMIG to
establish the new Southern California ACP Chapter Council of
Student Members. We are excited to host our first event this March,
Pearls for the Boards, featuring some of our most renowned
professors, including an endocrinologist, hematologist/oncologist
and pulmonologist. The event is highly anticipated and expected to
draw in a large crowd.
Although much of our time has been dedicated to these larger
programs, we are also partnering with individual student groups to
offer our members as many resources and opportunities as possible.
Our upcoming events include a lunchtime lecture with the Keck-USC
Student Interest Group in Neurology, which will feature Dr. Paul
Holtom, an erudite infectious disease specialist. Moreover, we are
helping first-year medical students begin a cardiology student
Effective collaboration is essential as a physician. This year
has been extremely exciting for our IMIG as we have grown our
network extensively and witnessed firsthand the incredible benefits
of working with other groups. These efforts have allowed our
members to connect with individuals from diverse fields to share
experiences, offer new insight, and learn together.
