Family Medicine Interest Group


Our group is dedicated to promoting family medicine and primary care in general as a career choice, by providing information on subspecialties, residency prerequisites, etc. We hold regular lunch meetings with topics relevant to important issues in family medicine, and may have dinners with residency programs from across the state. Our club also organizes "procedures nights" with the help of Ghent Family Medicine and Portsmouth Family Medicine residents and the EVMS department of Family Medicine to help those interested in family medicine get a head start on learning various procedures used by family physicians (suturing, splinting, drawing blood, etc.). We also participate in many outreach and community service events with EVMS and throughout the community, including the Heart of Ghent and Community Care Day.
