IMIG program announces top five schools

From the March ACP Internist, copyright 2010 by the American College of Physicians

ACP provides medical students with the tools they need to succeed in medical school as well as opportunities to enrich their medical education and develop an understanding of careers in internal medicine. Through a free membership, ACP informs medical students about the many valuable resources available to them.

An internal medicine interest group (IMIG) is a group of medical students who meet regularly to learn about internal medicine and to establish communication with faculty and other students who share similar interests. Most internal medicine interest groups have a faculty advisor who provides guidance, assists with the program, and lends continuity to the group.

ACP offers an IMIG sponsorship program where schools can register to participate and be rewarded for recruitment of medical student members. The 2009 ACP IMIG program closed on December 31, 2009. The top five schools this year were:

Medical School, (% of Medical Student Members)

University of Cincinnati College of Medicine (90%)

University of Hawaii (80%)

University of South Alabama (74%)

Wright State University School of Medicine (72%)

University of Mississippi School of Medicine (70%)
