student + resident councils


Are you passionate about family medicine? Do you have a vision for our field? Then consider joining the Medical Student Council or Family Medicine Resident Council! Council membership offers a unique opportunity to champion family medicine while developing the leadership and advocacy skills your future requires.

CAFP selects medical student and resident leaders to each council throughout the year. Council members help coordinate statewide activities for students interested in family medicine and develop innovative ways to promote and advocate for the specialty in the state of California.


To facilitate communication, increase teamwork and establish lasting relationships between family medicine leaders today for a brighter and stronger future tomorrow.


Each council consists of two Co-Chairs, who are members of the CAFP Executive Board and represent California as delegates to national conferences and organize statewide family medicine events. Each of the seven Building Bridges Regions have one Resident and one Medical Student District Director working with the local Program Director to facilitate district communication and events. 

Please contact Pamela Mann if you have any questions or concerns.
