The Internal Medicine Interest Group (IMIG) is one of the
largest student medical interest groups at the University of
Alabama School Of Medicine. We provide informative programming for
medical students interested in learning more about careers in
internal medicine and the array of subspecialty training
opportunities following residency. We also educate students about
the many benefits and opportunities for involvement in the medical
community through the American College of Physicians.
Since spring 2010 we have increased our membership by
approximately 25% and we are continually growing. Our executive
board is comprised of a diverse group of second year students whose
commitment to providing insight into the field of internal medicine
has been the driving force of our growth this year. Our executive
members include Osamuede Osemwota (President); Luke Smelser (Vice
President); Meghan McPheeters (Secretary); Jon Stidham (Treasurer);
Joe Carly (Webmaster); and Kenneth "Buck" Smith (Co-volunteer
Service Coordinator) and Joshua Tate (Co-volunteer Service
Coordinator and Membership Chair). We are currently holding
elections for two-first year representatives who will transition to
serve as president and vice president in spring 2011. After
transitioning to their clinical years, former executive members
remain active, specifically serving as moderators for an event
entitled "Honing your Clinical Skills: Formulating a Differential
Diagnosis," in which they present several patient cases while a
panel of internal medicine physicians interacts with the audience
as they work through generating a differential diagnosis.
This academic year we have many exciting events planned to
engage students and hopefully further nurture their interest in
internal medicine. Monthly lunch meetings provide a forum for
students to learn more about the field of internal medicine and the
vast career opportunities available after residency. This year
topics for our monthly meetings include: an introduction to
navigating internal medicine; politics and medicine; an internal
medicine resident panel; and medical jeopardy, modeled after the
Doctors' Dilemma program held at the national ACP scientific
conference. This month we are honored to have a presentation from
Wick Many, MD, FACP, President-elect of the Alabama ACP
We will also be hosting clinical skills sessions that will
include ECG interpretation, X-ray reading, suturing, phlebotomy,
and IV setup. In an effort to nurture and encourage competent
physicians, these workshops will provide first and second year
participants with hands on experience in each session offered.
In conjunction with the Student Medical National Association,
this year we have established a pre-medical undergraduate mentoring
program. We currently have one hundred undergraduate participants
from three Birmingham, Alabama, universities. The goals of the
program are to foster the importance of mentorship throughout our
professional careers and to aid undergraduate students through the
process of preparing for and entering into medical school.
Additional programs we have planned for the year include a
community health fair and an inter-class competitive blood
The University of Alabama School of Medicine IMIG is focused on
helping students understand the process and benefits of choosing a
career in internal medicine while simultaneously providing
opportunities for medical students to participate in both
constructive extracurricular activities and meaningful community
events. Our events and efforts have been successful through the
excellent support of our faculty advisor and current internal
medicine clerkship director, Jason Morris, MD, FACP, and both the
national and local Alabama Chapter ACP offices. For further
