There are several avenues for residents to become AAFP leaders. They can either be appointed by the AAFP directly, or they can be elected by their peers at the resident congress held during the annual National Conference of Family Medicine Residents and Medical Students.
Residents serve on six of the seven commissions of the AAFP and have multiple leadership opportunities at the National Conference. Residents also have the opportunity to serve as representatives to other medical, educational, or humanitarian organizations. Since 1974, residents have been represented in the AAFP'sCongress of Delegates by two elected delegates and two alternate delegates. A resident was appointed as an observer to the Board of Directors in 1984, by in 1985, the Bylaws were changed to authorize full voting privileges for the resident Board member. (2012 COD)
