Provide peer support and serve as a resource for family physicians who work with schools – from being a team doctor to doing school exams for students with no primary care physician to reviewing medical-based policies and protocols for schools when you join the School Doctor Member Interest Group (MIG).

Objectives

  • Help support and serve as a resource for a sub-practice performed by many Family Physicians that have no formal education on this topic and are often working in this field with no resources, back up or support.

  • Make the AAFP the go to organization to help set the bar for School Physicians in America

  • Assist the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) in membership recruitment and retention of family physicians who work with schools.

Long-term Goals

  • Help organize a listserv or courses to help educate those Family Physicians who serve as school doctors by formal education and peer support by those of us that serve already.

  • Hope to encourage others to become school doctors since resources and role models would be available to help support them – where none exists now!
