National Conference of Family Medicine Residents
Thursday, July 28 - Saturday, July 30, 2022
Kansas City, Missouri

National Conference brings together many of the most promising medical students and residents, who all share a passion for family medicine and a common goal to become the best physician possible. In 2021, we were honored to host 3,274 of the brightest new minds in family medicine—that’s 1,819 medical students and 1,455 family practice residents—at our Virtual National Conference. We can’t wait to see what 2022 will bring. Make plans to join us for next year for an event packed with education, networking, and exhibitor and residency program interactions. And discover all family medicine has to offer. Click HERE to learn more.


Family Medicine Interest Groups
FMIGs are a great way for students who are already committed to (or curious about) a career in family medicine.
Check with your medical school- you probably have a local family medicine interest group.
You may also find the AAFP's virtual FMIG site useful.
