WHAT IS THE IMS FOUNDATION?
The 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 IMS.
WHY CONTRIBUTE TO IMSF?
The IMSF supports physician initiatives that promote professionalism and leadership, including sponsorship of IMS CANDOR conferences and workshops, and support of Provider Burnout and Professional Resiliency conferences and educational sessions. For the IMSF, development of medical students at Des Moines University's Osteopathic College of Medicine, and the University of Iowa's Carver College of Medicine is of utmost importance, and remains our #1 priority for our 2023 Month of Giving.
In the last 10 years alone, the IMSF has been able to send over 110 medical students to 25+ countries to gain invaluable medical training and on-site experiences.
