Psychiatric Medicine Interest Group (PMIG)

What is PMIG?

The Psychiatric Medicine Interest Group (PMIG) is an organization dedicated to promoting medical student awareness of
the different aspects of psychiatry.

Our goals are as follows:
· Promote awareness of mental health 
   issues and combat the stigma
   of mental illness and learning disabilities

· Promote self-awareness and well-being 
  among medical students

  diversity of psychiatry

· Educate the community regarding how psychiatry can play a role
  in other fields of medicine
