Family Medicine Interest Group
Welcome to the homepage for the Family Medicine Interest Group, sponsored by the Department of Family Medicine.
Family Medicine Interest Group is a student-driven and student-led group that provides supplementary and complementary experience in Family Medicine that enhances personal, clinical, and leadership growth.
Programming activities include noontime meetings focusing on specific interests of FMIG along with evening/weekend events such as Suturing Workshops, "Balancing Medicine and Life" evenings, Skis & Knees Sports Medicine weekends and an annual Health Fair in Blacksville, West Virginia.
Beginning in May 2005, FMIG embarked on a community outreach program to the unsheltered homeless in the greater Morgantown community. Modeled after the "Operation Safety Net" program in Pittsburgh, our FMIG program is affectionately known as MUSHROOM - Multidisciplinary UnSheltered Homeless Relief Outreach of Morgantown.

We recommend that you spend time visiting the Virtual FMIG provided by the American Academy of Family Physicians. This provides students with information that is relevant at each point in their medical education from admission to graduation.
