Family Medicine Interest Group

The mission of the Family Medicine Interest Group (FMIG) is to provide opportunities for the students at Stritch to learn more about the Family Medicine specialty. Through community service, mentoring programs, guest speakers, and physician panels, we hope to foster the interest in this field throughout the school.

Events

  • Panels - In the Fall semester, we host a panel of Family Medicine physicians to talk about their career path and current lives. In the Spring semester, we co-host a primary care panel with the Internal Medicine and Pediatric Interest Groups for students to explore career options in primary care.
  • Workshop - During the year, we host a suturing workshop sponsored by St. Joseph Health System of Mishawaka, IN, a third year family medicine clerkship site.
  • Free Health Screenings - Every other Wednesday, we partner with NLVS to host free blood pressure screenings at the Maywood Public Library and discuss healthy lifestyles with the patrons at the library.
  • Mentoring Program - For any member interested, we can match the student with a Family Medicine doctor at Loyola to shadow.
