I meet many medical students at various ACP-sponsored meetings who are full of lofty goals which they intend to accomplish-once they graduate from medical school, that is. Most of them are surprised to find out there is much to be done on the local level even as medical students. It is a valuable exercise to learn how to energize your school's internal medicine interest group (IMIG) and thereby learn the skills necessary to be a productive physician.
On the first day of school in a lecture hall at the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health, Mark Richman spied a beautiful girl walking across the stage. Like her, he was there picking up forms for the MPH program. "I remember thinking 'Who's that girl?'" he says. "I thought there's no way I could date someone like her." Ten years later the two are married. He's also pleasantly surprised by his career trajectory, one he could never have predicted. He quickly adds however, that the end result, however circuitous, was a product of staying true to his personality and goals. "At a certain point, things stop being a coincidence," he says.
Although the Internal Medicine Interest Group (IMIG) at Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine (VCOM) is one of the youngest clubs on campus, it is quickly becoming one of the fastest growing groups. In our short three-year history we have discovered that many of our first year students do not fully understand what internal medicine is and what this exciting field has to offer. Therefore, we have made it our primary goal to both educate and excite our student body about internal medicine.
Smoking is the leading cause of preventable death in the United States causing 40,000 deaths/year. Despite the benefits of quitting, screening and counseling for smokers remains inadequate, even in hospitalized patients. Hospital admission increases physician/patient interaction time allowing opportunies to counsel and enroll patients in smoking-cessation programs.
Adolescent medicine focuses on the physical, psychological, social, and sexual development of adolescents and young adults. Multidisciplinary and comprehensive in approach, this specialty encompasses the full spectrum of acute, chronic, and preventive health care. Adolescent medicine evaluates medical and behavioral problems within the context of puberty and tailors management to the individual's developmental needs.
The College sponsors local and national abstract competitions for medical students that offer monetary awards and the chance to win recognition. The winning entries in both the National Clinical Vignette and Research competitions are featured each year at the College's premier annual Internal Medicine meeting. National winners are awarded a monetary prize to offset the cost of attending the meeting, and finalists are invited to compete on-site in the poster competitions for monetary prizes.
