Reach Student Leaders
The AAFP established the National Family Medicine Interest Group (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.
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.
Like other medical specialty interest groups prevalent on medical school campuses, Family Medicine Interest Groups (FMIGs) provide a forum for students interested in a particular area of medicine -- family medicine.
FMIGs are student-run with oversight by a faculty advisor. Through these groups, students cultivate their interests and leadership potential, get involved in community service and mentoring activities, and focus on their future as family physicians.
Learn more about what you'll experience when you get involved with the FMIG on your campus.
