International Medicine Society

The purpose of the International Medicine Society (IMS) is to assist students in obtaining a health education experience abroad. The society maintains a network of students, faculty and alumni that enable members to share insight, resources and contacts concerning medical education in an international setting. Members also work with other medical students across the country on the “Remedy Project” in which developing countries around the world benefit from unused medical equipment donations. Seminars and general meetings are held to present experiences by faculty and students in international health care and to educate students regarding health issues and current healthcare challenges abroad. The International Medicine Society also helps raise diversity awareness through various cultural activities on campus.
