What is IMSF?
The Iowa Medical Society Foundation (IMSF) is the giving arm of IMS, the largest physician membership organization in Iowa representing more than 6,100 medical students, residents, and physicians. IMSF is a voluntary organization that uses personal donations from physicians and friends of medicine to inspire, facilitate, and expand the educational and philanthropic endeavors of the Iowa Medical Society.
IMSF supports physician initiatives promoting professionalism and leadership, including the development of medical students in Iowa. IMSF also supports public health initiatives and the philanthropic efforts of Iowa physicians and IMS.
In 2017, IMSF provided scholarships to Iowan students attending medical school at Des Moines University College of Osteopathic Medicine and the University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine. The Foundation purchases the white coats worn by these students and helps fund Global Health Studies Clinic Experiences.
In efforts to provide professional development to Iowa physicians and patients, IMSF helped in sponsoring the IMS Candor conference in September and is funding a Provider Burnout and Professional Resiliency conference in 2018, as well as educational sessions during the IMS Annual Conference.
