Starting an FMIG may seem like a daunting task but the AAFP, your AAFP State Chapter and your school have resources that can help you.
First, the AAFP doesn’t have specific requirements that must be met in order for your FMIG to be an “official” group. However, your school might require certain paperwork so it is suggested that you contact the department at your school that is responsible for student clubs to make sure that your group is registered (and “official”) with your school. This could be the student government association, the Dean’s office, student services or others.
Across the country, FMIGs vary greatly in their size, leadership structure, mission statements, programming and community service activities.
Here are the basic things that you need to think about when you start your FMIG:
