All scholarships to National Conference are provided by the American Academy of Family Physicians Foundation through its Family Medicine Leads(www.aafpfoundation.org) program. Family Medicine Leads focuses on filling the workforce pipeline with the best and the brightest as well as supporting the development of future family medicine leaders.
All scholarships are made possible by the donations of individual family physicians across the country.
In 2016, 220 scholarships were awarded to attend the National Conference of Family Medicine Residents and Medical Students in Kansas City, Missouri from July 28-30. Scholarship recipients were selected by a panel of judges. The $600 scholarship is intended to help reduce out-of-pocket expenses (registration, travel, lodging, meals) to attend National Conference. All scholarship checks will be awarded at National Conference. If you are unable to attend the conference, your scholarship will be forfeited.
These students and residents were recognized by the AAFP for their interest in family medicine and committment to providing patient-centered care.
