In 2016, the AAFP Foundation will provide 220 Family Medicine Leads Scholarships for National Conference, thanks to the generosity of our donors.
Family Medicine Leads Scholarships to attend the AAFP National Conference of Family Medicine Residents and Medical Students provide Family Medicine residents and medical students the opportunity to explore Family Medicine through clinical sessions, procedural workshops, and interaction with family physicians from across the country.
Many scholarship recipients solidify their commitment to the specialty and develop their leadership skills through participation in the National Conference of Family Medicine Residents and Medical Students. In fact, nearly 75% of the third- and fourth-year medical students attending on scholarships commit to Family Medicine and become AAFP members. When you provide support for Family Medicine Leads Scholarships, you can feel confident that you are positively affecting the future of Family Medicine.
