BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: If medical schools are to produce primary care physicians (family medicine, pediatrics, or general internal medicine), they must provide educational experiences that enable medical students to maintain existing or form new interests in such careers. This study examined three mechanisms for doing so, at one medical school: participation as an officer in a family medicine interest group (FMIG), completion of a dual medical/public health (MD/MPH) degree program, and participation in a rural medical education (RMED) clinical track...

Study Objective. To compare surgical volume and techniques including laparoscopic suturing among members of the American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopists (AAGL) according to fellowship training status. Design. A web-based survey was designed using Qualtrics and sent to AAGL members. Results. Minimally invasive gynecologic surgery (FMIGS) trained surgeons were more likely to perform more than 8 major conventional laparoscopic cases per month (63% versus 38%, P < 0.001, OR [95% CI] = 2.78 [1.54-5...

STUDY OBJECTIVE: The Fellowship in Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery (FMIGS) is a postresidency fellowship developed with the mission to train the next generation of minimally invasive gynecologic surgeons. The need for surgeons trained in this field has increased, yet there remains a paucity of information regarding the compensation of these specialized surgeons. DESIGN: A survey was sent via e-mail to FMIGS graduates (N = 221) using an online survey tool; it was sent twice more to increase the response rate between July and December 2013...

H2-M3-restricted CD8+ T cells provide early protection against bacterial infections. In this study, we demonstrate that activated H2-M3-restricted T cells provide early signals for efficient CD4+ T cell priming. C57BL/6 mice immunized with dendritic cells coated with the MHC class II-restricted listeriolysin O peptide LLO(190-201) (LLO) generated CD4+ T cells capable of responding to Listeria monocytogenes (LM) infection. Inclusion of a H2-M3-restricted formylated peptide fMIGWII (fMIG), but not MHC class Ia-restricted peptides, during immunization with LLO significantly increased IFN-gamma-producing CD4+ T cell numbers, which was associated with increased protection against LM infection...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Family medicine interest groups (FMIGs) are student organizations that help students learn about family practice and foster interest in the specialty. To date, their activity has not been studied. The goal of this study was to characterize FMIG activity in US medical schools and FMIG relationship to specialty selection. METHODS: A questionnaire was mailed to all US medical school family medicine predoctoral directors. Results were correlated with specialty selection data...
