Connect with the FMIG Network

About the Network

The AAFP established the National FMIG Network to aid communication and the exchange of best practices between FMIG students and faculty leaders across the country. The network consists of campus-based faculty and student FMIG leaders, appointed Regional Coordinators, and one elected National Coordinator. These coordinators serve as consultants to and resources for FMIGs.

What is the Family Medicine Interest Group (FMIG) Network?

  • The FMIG Network was established in 1995 as a way to enhance communication and the exchange of best practices among FMIG student and faculty leaders across the country.
  • The FMIG Network is led by one elected National Coordinator and five appointed Regional Coordinators. They serve as conduits of information from the national and state AAFP offices to the campus FMIGs and often take on a role as consultants to these groups.

FMIG Network Mission Statement

  • Encourage active learning and promotion of family medicine.
  • Improve communication between AAFP and campus FMIGs.
  • Serve as credible resource for FMIGs for programming, family physician resources, fundraising and FMIG administration.
  • Foster positive leadership skills and behaviors in FMIG student and faculty leaders.
