Southern Illinois University School of Medicine Family and Community Medicine - Family Medicine Interest Group (FMIG)


Student Interest Groups

Family Medicine believes that student interest groups are important avenues for medical students to investigate areas of interest. The faculty advisors and coordinators work closely with the students to develop programs that are meaningful, educational, and fun for the students. Most interest groups are held after 5:00 PM on campus. Often interest group meetings are sponsored and provided by outside agencies, hospitals, and other medical institutions. If you are interested in providing an opportunity for medical students in an area appropriate for one of our interest groups or interested in locations, dates, and times of sessions please contact Dr. Tracey Smith at The student interest groups that are sponsored by our department include Family Medicine (FMIG), Interdisciplinary Network for Outreach (INFO) (a community outreach based group) Group, Global Interest Group, and The Forum (a group focused on Humanism).

The mission of the Southern Illinois University School of Medicine is to assist the people of central and southern Illinois in meeting their health care needs through education, patient care, research, and service to the community.
