Conferences, Connections, and Collaboration
The FMIG Network thrives today because of the hard work of so many FMIGs working together to promote family medicine. Resources listed in this section offer some additional ways to communicate and connect with each other.
FMIG Network Leaders -- Get in touch with your Regional Coordinator to share ideas, ask questions, or connect with other schools hosting activities in your region.
AAFP National Conference of Family Medicine Residents and Medical Students -- It only happens once a year — the only national conference that connects the entire family medicine chain. The three-day event includes a packed exhibition hall with more than 400 exhibitors looking to connect with medical students and family medicine residents, workshops, and lectures on more than 50 topics, and a chance to make lifelong connections with others who share a stake in family medicine.
Regional Conference Calls for FMIG Leaders -- The AAFP invites FMIG leaders from medical schools across the country to join in their region's Conference Call for FMIG Leaders. Since medical students are the driving force behidn each FMIG, the sharing of ideas between FMIGs is extremely important.
National Primary Care Week -- Resources and contact information for your FMIG to collaborate with your school's AMSA chapter, other interest groups in primary care, your state chapter and others to recognize National Primary Care Week on your campus, and expose your fellow students to family medicine.
