National Conference Helped Set Our Family Medicine Paths

According to preliminary totals, nearly 1,900 medical students were in Kansas City, Mo., this weekend, along with more than 1,200 family medicine residents representing 400-plus family medicine programs.

Michelle Byrne, M.D., M.P.H., the resident member of the AAFP Board of Directors, and student Board member Chandler Stisher, M.D., M.P.H., visit the Expo Hall during the National Conference of Family Medicine Residents and Medical Students, July 25-27 in Kansas City, Mo.

The July 25-27 event offered dynamic speakers, workshops, social and networking events, an Expo Hall featuring representatives from hundreds of family medicine residencies, and the resident and student congresses -- including elections for leadership positions.

If you are a medical student considering family medicine, you really should be here, too. It may be too late for the 2019 event, but National Conference will return to the Kansas City Convention Center July 30-Aug. 1, 2020.

We asked Michelle Byrne, M.D., M.P.H., the resident member of the AAFP Board of Directors, and student Board member Chandler Stisher, M.D., M.P.H., how National Conference influenced their career paths. Here's what they shared.
