About National Conference

AAFP has hosted students and residents at National Conference for 46 years—and the tradition continues as a virtual event.  At National Conference you can advance your knowledge, make connections and learn what’s on the horizon for family medicine. Just like with the live conference, the virtual platform will allow you to tailor your experience to best meet your needs and will include:

  • 11 hours of live workshops and main stage sessions
  • On-demand access to all education for 30 days after the event
  • Virtual expo hall, including the ability to schedule one-on-one appointments
  • Networking opportunities

Family medicine encompasses all areas of medicine, and National Conference is the only place where you can explore your unique interests and learn just what it means to be a part of it all.

Who Attends?

National Conference brings together many of the most promising medical students and residents, who all share a passion for family medicine and a common goal—becoming the best physician possible.

Medical Students

Medical Students

Explore what family medicine is all about with programming designed to enhance your family medicine education. Prepare for clinical rotations in the current COVID-19 environment, visit one-on-one with residency programs before applying through ERAS, and get inspiration you need for transitioning to residency.



Refine clinical skills throughs sessions relevant to residents, meet virtually with potential employers, learn about post-residency opportunities, and prepare to transition into practice with confidence.

Virtual Expo Hall

The National Conference expo hall is the place to visit with nearly 400 family medicine residency programs, connect with potential employers, and gather information you need to make informed career decisions. As a virtual expo hall, attendees can easily find programs and exhibitors they want to connect with based on areas of interest, geography, and more. Plus, schedule one-on-one virtual appointments with more dedicated expo hall hours.
