Good to Know

Are you a resident staffing your program's booth? You can participate in all the educational programming, including Main Stage sessions and workshops! And to make it even easier for you to get the most from National Conference, many sessions are scheduled around Expo Hall hours. For example, resident exhibitors can take full advantage of Thursday’s lineup before the Expo Hall opens.


Full payment must be received with your registration. Pay by check (payable to the AAFP) or charge your registration to American Express, Visa, MasterCard, or Discover.

Attendees may order a scooter or wheelchair online through Chuck’s Mobility at or by phone at (816)525-2205. Reservations are recommended 72 hours in advance. No scooter or wheelchair rental will be available at the convention center.

Only AAFP members are eligible to attend National Conference.

  • The bylaws adopted by the 2018 Congress of Delegates now allow students from international medical schools to join the AAFP as student members. Previously these individuals were classified as international members.

  • Non-member students and residents who qualify to join the AAFP can apply to become members. Once membership has been approved, you can register online for National Conference. Membership applications must be received and approved by July 1 to be eligible for a discounted registration fee.

  • Individuals who completed medical school in 2022, 2023, or 2024 but have not matched into a residency program may join the AAFP as a transitional member for $125. (Some chapters may also assess dues.) Once membership is approved, you can register online for National Conference.


  • Full refund if canceled by May 16
  • $25 admin fee assessed if canceled May 17–July 16
  • 100% fee accessed if canceled after July 16

Please allow up to four weeks for delivery of refund. Fees will be refunded the same way they were paid to the AAFP. This policy covers registration and ticketed events.

If a program is canceled by the AAFP, every effort will be made to notify registrants as least 30 days prior to the first day of the course, and registration fees will be refunded.
