One-fourth of students first learn about National Conference from their Family Medicine Interest Group (Thank you!). FMIGs provide an invaluable community for medical students to explore and learn about the specialty of family medicine. In appreciation and to encourage continuation of these efforts, the AAFP would like to offer FMIGs $100 for hosting a National Conference informational meeting. The $100 may be applied towards meeting costs, including food, drink, and other necessities.

How do you earn the $100?

Each individual FMIG must complete and fulfill the below:


What are the rules?

The below rules apply:

  • Family medicine specialty interest groups at all medical schools are eligible to participate.
  • Only the first 50 participating FMIG groups will receive the $100 funding. If your group is not within the first 50 to respond, the AAFP will notify you.
  • Each FMIG group is eligible to receive the $100. Each can only participate once.
  • FMIGs at regionally separated (branch) campuses may apply separately from the main campus.
  • The FMIG-hosted National Conference informational meeting must occur in spring 2019. 
  • Each participating FMIG group must show the National Conference PowerPoint presentation provided by the AAFP.
  • The AAFP-provided National Conference presentation can be included in an already planned FMIG meeting or at a specific meeting to share the conference information.
  • FMIG groups must provide the AAFP with the completed submission form and attendee list provided by the AAFP to receive the funding.
  • The submission form(1 page PDF) and attendee list(1 page PDF) must be provided to the AAFP no later than May 15, 2019.

How can I involve my State Chapter?

Consider contacting your State Chapter representative to see if they would like to participate in your meeting. Some state chapters have their own scholarships and opportunities for medical students. Also, consider inviting a panel of past attendees—students, residents, and/or faculty—to share their National Conference experience.
