Family Medicine Interest Group

The Family Medicine Interest Group is an on-campus organization comprised of students interested in a career in the specialty of family medicine. The Kansas Academy of Family Physicians provides some financial support.

The goals of FMIG are:

  • To promote interest in the specialty of family medicine.
  • To provide exposure to the three family medicine residencies:
    • Via Christi
    • Wesley
    • Smoky Hill - Salina
  • To provide educational and social events related to the above.

FMIG provides practical information about the specialty of family medicine to other students, encourages students with an interest in the specialty to learn more about it, and provides opportunities for students to come together in a casual environment for social and learning experiences.

Since 2002, FMIG has hosted an annual Doc for a Day workshop for high school students from Wichita and the surrounding area who are interested in a career in medicine. Activities include a procedure workshop, introduction to obstetrics, discussion of careers in the medical field, and tips for getting into medical school. Refreshments will be provided, and each participant will receive a T-shirt with registration.
