Club Med, the Internal Medicine Interest Group at the University
of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey (UMDNJ)-New Jersey Medical
School, is one of the most popular noncredit electives offered to
first- and second-year medical students. The elective consists of a
lecture series, as well as RTM (Residents Teaching Medical
The lectures cover a wide variety of topics, including "What Is
an Internist?" and "Developing a Differential Diagnosis." There are
also separate lectures on the various specialties within internal
medicine, including pulmonology, gastroenterology, cardiology,
nephrology, and endocrinology. These lectures provide students with
some insight into the field of internal medicine and what the
various subspecialties entail.
The RTM sessions, on the other hand, provide clinical exposure.
RTM sessions are clinical teaching rounds offered five to six times
per month. During each session, five medical students meet with a
resident and have the opportunity to observe some of the more
interesting clinical cases in the hospital. This allows students to
apply what they have learned in class and become more proficient at
physical diagnosis. It also provides first- and second-year medical
students with an opportunity for obtaining clinical exposure in
their "preclinical" years.
Club Med also organizes a Match Panel. After Match Day,

Program at UMDNJ-University Hospital, is actively involved with the
organization. He also serves on the governor's council for the New
Jersey Chapter of ACP.
Club Med is run by second-year medical students. The current
executive board includes Yoni Litwok, Nury Yim, Derek Yee, Jenna
Kaufman, Connie Chang, Ashley Tran, and Prasanthi Yelavarthy.

have shown genuine interest in the organization and have
participated in various Club Med activities.
