Family Medicine Interest Group


The Georgetown Family Medicine Interest Group (FMIG) is a student-run organization that is supported by the Department of Family Medicine and the American Academy of Family Physicians. We have created a supportive environment for medical students to explore Family Medicine as a field, learn more about career opportunities in Family Medicine, develop personal relationships with Family Medicine faculty and residents, learn clinical skills and have some fun.
