Description: The mission of the Duke School of Medicine Policy and Management Interest Group is to aid medical students and allied health professions students who are seeking to explore careers in health policy, management, finance, or innovation; or more broadly looking to understand the policy issues and implications around provision of healthcare in the United States, and how they impact medical professionals. The mission of PMIG is to serve as the preeminent SOM/SON/PA/PT organization to "fill the  gaps" in education about policy issues for health professionals, and give students a good idea of the world in which they will be working. This group seeks to cast a wider net for students who have a passing interest or just wish to become smarter on the issues and how it will affect their future. We value multidisciplinary education and the pursuit of diverse interests among members of the healthcare team in order to deliver better care to our patients on an individual and a systems basis. We will accomplish this by presenting lectures, discussion panels, and debates on the foremost health care policy and management issues of today.
