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


Welcome Home Family Medicine Residents!

The Delaware Academy of Family Physicians is proud to have 100% resident membership.

Opportunities for Residents


Residents are welcome to attend the numerous educational lectures, symposia and conferences offered by the DAFP (often with little or no charge).


Many DAFP leaders got their feet wet in organizational politics as a resident member of their state chapter. Each spring, the leadership looks for residents to volunteer for positions including:

  • Resident Director (DAFP Board Member, may also serve as DE delegate to NCFMR)
  • Tar Wars Program co-chairs
  • Committee co-chairs & members


There are a number of opportunities for residents to develop their scholarship at the state level including:

  • Presentation of your scholarly activity project as a poster at the Annual Scientific Assembly
  • Resident presentations over lunch at Annual Scientific Assembly
  • Jack Gelb, MD Award (Christiana Care Residents)

Service to the Community

Residents are encouraged to participate in the community service activities of the Academy including Tar Wars, health fairs and community health talks.
