The Family Medicine Interest Group (FMIG) at the Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University is a program that has been nationally recognized repeatedly for its innovations in helping students to learn about family medicine.
Many students still have a hard time grasping the full scope of what family physicians can do.Our FMIG strives to help educate students and the community obtain a better perspective on the variety of services family medicine physicians can offer and the skill sets one can gain as a family medicine resident.Our FMIG group utilizes monthly lunch presentations, procedures workshops, volunteer clinics, faculty mentoring, and state and national level conference scholarships to help teach students what makes family medicine so unique.
With our focus on the whole patient and broad array of interests, family physicians are poised to serve on the forefront of patient-centered medical care in large urban cities or small rural areas, bringing humanism to an ever-changing field.
No matter what specialty you may choose, any medical student can benefit from the FMIG's patient-centered approach to health and wellness.I invite you to come and join us - we can't wait to help you learn the art of medicine!
