The Family Medicine Interest Group (FMIG) at FIU was the first student interest group established at the HWCOM. FMIG is affiliated with the national and state American Academy of Family Physicians. It seeks to educate and promote family medicine at FIU. FMIG provides (1) a forum for students to learn about family medicine and gain early exposure and interest in family medicine; (2) the dissemination of accurate information about family medicine; (3) lifetime connections between students and family physician mentors, and (4) opportunities for community service. FMIG also provides possibilities for students to attend the state and national American Academy of Family Physicians conferences.
