Promoting Healthcare Excellence & the Betterment of the Health of the People of Delaware


Welcome Home Future
Family Doctors!

The Delaware Academy of Family Physicians considers medical students our future new members! Delaware does not have its own medical school, but we pride ourselves on providing quality medical education training for both allopathic and osteopathic medical students.

Opportunities for Medical Students



Students enrolled in allopathic or osteopathic medical schools that are approved by appropriate U.S. accrediting institutions as defined by the AAFP Commission on Education

Benefits of Student Membership

Student members may run for national office including the Student Board position on the American Academy of Family Physicians Board of Directors.
For additional benefits review the AAFP website

National Conference

National Conference of Family Medicine Residents and Medical Students (NC)— Three action-packed days filled with Main Stage lectures, procedure courses and clinics, 400-plus exhibitors, including more than 300-plus residency programs. Help choose your national student leaders – or become one yourself at the Leadership Forum. Author and vote on resolutions that provide direction to the AAFP at the national level. (Scholarships are often available.)

Thursday, July 30 – Saturday, August 1, 2020 | Kansas City, Missouri


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.
