Each year, the National Congress of Family Medicine Residents (NCFMR) and the National Congress of Student Members (NCSM) convene during the National Conference of Family Medicine Residents and Medical Students to discuss issues of vital interest to residents and medical students. This discussion generates resolutions, which often influence American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) policy, programming, and activities. The following information will help you be a part of this process(7 page PDF).
To assess the merits of a proposed resolution, authors are asked to consider, acknowledge, and explain the following questions as part of the online resolution form (so please have information prepared and readily available):
1. Up to 20 resolutions will be accepted via the online portal as early submissions
2. Up to 25 resolutions, or balance needed to total no more than 45 resolutions, will be accepted via the online portal onsite at National Conference.
Once a resolution has been submitted, no edits may be made (before or onsite at National Conference).
If new information or collaborators are identified and authors would like to amend its submission, a new resolution must be written and submitted online before the deadline and/or cap has been met.
At any time prior to the submission deadline, a resolution primary author may request via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or in person to AAFP staff in the Congress Business Office (Room 2505) that his/her resolution be withdrawn from consideration. At the discretion of the AAFP staff, this may or may not result in the allowance of a different (not necessarily by the same author) resolution to be submitted in its place under the cap.
