UTHSC Family Medicine Interest Group (FMIG)
The Family Medicine Interest Group (FMIG) at the University of Tennessee is a student-run organization designed to promote professionalism, create interest in Family Medicine, disseminate information about Family Medicine, and promote medical student leadership in Family Medicine.
We achieve these goals by providing a periodic lunch seminar series highlighting various areas of Family Medicine, providing evening workshops for medical students on splinting, suturing, codes, and other medical techniques, and promoting student-faculty interaction. We are also involved in the AAFP's national community service project Tar Wars. Our main goal is to help create future family physicians.
