Female Residents in Internal Medicine (FRIM)

Female Residents in Internal Medicine (FRIM)

The goal of this group is to provide peer mentoring, sponsorship, career resilience, and guidance for residents. We meet monthly, and our meetings alternate between didactic sessions and socials. Our faculty mentor is Dr. Dianne Goede. While this group focuses on female residents, we encourage male residents to participate in the discussions as well. We also welcome spouses of housestaff and other #FriendsofFrim. Some of the topics we have covered in the year 2017-18 include:

  • Skills in Negotiation
  • Identifying Mentors
  • Conflict Resolution
  • Career and Family Planning
  • Self-Advocacy through Communication
  • Trials and Tribulations of Fellowship Training


  • Chief Resident in Charge: Samantha Dibenedetto
  • President: Diana Hatamleh
  • Vice-President: Lindsey Woody
