National Conference is the place to find out what is happening in family medicine, learn new things to take back to your school or program, and connect with residencies, fellowships, and the AAFP.
The networking I have done at National Conference has given me a cadre of family medicine peers I am in contact with across the country. I am at a new residency and we are constantly coming up against challenges that were unexpected, and that we don’t have a solution for yet. I get to be able to reach out to my resident peers and ask how their residency handles such issues.
National Conference recharges me to go back to a long call shift, difficult patients, and too little sleep.

It’s inspiring to talk to other residents, students, and family medicine leaders at National Conference about their reasons for choosing (and continuing to choose) family medicine. National Conference recharges me to go back to a long call shift, difficult patients, and too little sleep.
There’s no other place besides National Conference where you can find a residency, improve your skills, testify in support of proposals for the AAFP to take action, run for office, and meet like-minded peers from across the country.
Residents and students are the future of family medicine. The decisions being made today, the processes being put in motion, the discussions we are having, and the rights and responsibilities we are advocating for now will affect our practice in the future. I hope you’ll join me at National Conference so we can continue working toward a strong specialty.
