Join the FMIG Network online community to stay updated on news and events.
The AAFP established the National Family Medicine Interest Group (FMIG) Network in 1995 to aid communication and the exchange of best practices between FMIG students and faculty leaders across the country. The network consists of student FMIG leaders and campus-based faculty, five appointed Regional Coordinators, one elected National Coordinator, a liaison to the Latino Medical Student Association, and a liaison to the Student National Medical Association. These coordinators serve as consultants to and resources for FMIGs.
Build a robust workforce of compassionate, committed, and highly qualified family physicians who care for and improve the health of all.
Develop the family medicine workforce and advance the specialty of family medicine by strengthening current and aspiring medical students through the FMIG Network across the country, therefore empowering U.S. medical students to be prepared for and choose to pursue a career in family medicine.
Like other medical specialty interest groups prevalent on medical school campuses, Family Medicine Interest Groups (FMIGs) provide a forum for students interested in a particular area of medicine -- family medicine.
FMIGs are student-run with oversight by a faculty advisor. Through these groups, students cultivate their interests and leadership potential, get involved in community service and mentoring activities, and focus on their future as family physicians.
Learn more about what you'll experience when you get involved with the FMIG on your campus.
