Family medicine summit

The focus of the Family Medicine Summit is to engage the next generation of family physicians in leadership, advocacy and education with interactive sessions that will have you mingling and socializing with your peers as you learn. Other discussions will help you build your professional network and enhance your clinical skills with procedural workshops.

National Conference for Residents and Students

Join us in Kansas City, MO, July 27-29! The 2017 AAFP National Conference is the place to explore, learn, and connect for the next chapter of family medicine. Immerse yourself in topics ranging from clinical skills and career planning to the factors that are influencing the health care system transformation. Leave with important connections and an energizing passion for family medicine.


Procedural Workshop for Medical Students

The student and resident procedure workshops are held every year in late Winter/early Spring as an effort to introduce students and residents to the variety of procedures that family physicians are trained to perform. We host two workshop half-days - one in Southern California and one in Northern California. The event was the fruit of labor of two CAFP resident leaders and continues to be championed by our student and resident councils. To get involved in the planning process or for more information, please contact Pamela Mann.

Family Medicine Residents' Poster Contest

Family medicine residents are encouraged to enter the CAFP Foundation's annual Resident Poster contest. Twenty posters are selected for display at the Family Medicine Clinical Forum, ten are presented on the main stage to the Forum attendees and two are announced as winners. Posters are submitted for research and cases. Please check back for the 2018 application.
