This student-led organization promotes interest in primary care, particularly Family Medicine. Periodic lunch or dinner meetings feature speakers on a wide range of topics, from practice scope to selection of a practice site. The group also sponsors an annual Southeastern Family Medicine Residency Fair.
FMIG is supported by the Department of Family Medicine, the Georgia Academy of Family Physicians, and the American Academy of Family Physicians. Membership for medical students is free and includes a subscription to American Family Physician, a peer-reviewed monthly journal covering Family Practice issues. The AAFP also provides a great website for students and Family Medicine Interest Groups.
