The Internal Medicine Interest Group (IMIG) at the University of
Hawaii John A. Burns School of Medicine (UH JABSOM) was founded in
2006. Since its inception, it has been one of the most active and
largest student interest groups at the school. Even before our IMIG
was founded in 2006, UH JABSOM had won ACP Medical School Awards
for student membership ranging 58-74.5% of the student body. The
founding of IMIG in spring 2006 has resulted in record high levels
of ACP student membership, ranging 77-83%. Our goals are to provide
medical students with information about careers in internal
medicine, foster communication with faculty, connect students with
shadowing and research opportunities, and improve clinical skills
and knowledge applicable to internal medicine.
The JABSOM IMIG kicked off the 2010 school year in July by
recruiting new first year medical students to IMIG and ACP during
JABSOM's Student Activities Fair. In September, we held our popular
Subspecialty and Residents Mixer where representatives from various
subspecialties including cardiology, nephrology, gastroenterology,
pulmonology, geriatrics, hematology/oncology, endocrinology, and
rheumatology talked to students of all levels about their
respective fields. We also invited residents from the University of
Hawaii Internal Medicine Residency Program to speak to eager
medical students about "life in residency." The event was a huge
success, as many students requested that we organize this event
again next year. In October (after the Electronic Residency
Application Service opened!), we focused our attention on fourth
year students with a workshop geared toward residency interview
planning. Key topics discussed included scheduling interviews, what
to wear, and common interview questions. In November, IMIG held an
EKG Workshop with one of our third-year inpatient site coordinators
who is a cardiologist. Every chair at this meeting was filled with
first and second year students as they learned a systematic
approach to EKG interpretation. After the holidays, IMIG got off to
a fresh start with our Introduction to the Third Year Medicine
Clerkship meeting geared towards second year students. This meeting
was held at the beautiful Ko'olau Country Club during the Annual
Hawaii Chapter ACP Scientific Meeting on January 8, 2011. Third and
fourth year students provided information to the second year
students regarding what to expect and how to succeed in the
medicine clerkship. In addition, all students present were able to
enjoy the podium and poster research presentations and discussions
about local and national issues affecting the practice and teaching
of internal medicine.
In addition to organizing events that benefit all four classes,
one of our program's biggest goals this year is community service.
In September-October 2010, our members volunteered at the National
Kidney Foundation of Hawaii Free Kidney Screenings throughout the
island of Oahu. In January 2011, our program provided free blood
pressure screening at the JABSOM Annual Community Health Fair. We
hope to provide our members with more community service
opportunities in the future.
As JABSOM IMIG celebrates another robust year full of events and
active student participation, we plan to end our academic year with
a workshop to help third year medical students plan their fourth
year medicine electives schedule and to hold officer elections.
Next year, JABSOM IMIG will continue to inspire and support its
future internal medicine physicians with enthusiasm and fresh
Our IMIG events and efforts have been successful through the
support from our very dedicated faculty advisor, Dr. Laurie Tam.
