National Student and Resident Conference

NATIONAL CONFERENCE OF FAMILY MEDICINE
RESIDENTS & MEDICAL STUDENTS (NCFMRMS)
July 27-29, 2017 - Kansas City

 

THIS IS A PHENOMENAL OPPORTUNITY FOR LEADERSHIP AND DEVELOPMENT!

  • Participate in the Resident and Student Congress

This is the chance to voice your opinions and vote on issues important to future family physicians. Many of the initiatives launched by residents and students are now Academy policy.

  • Serve as Your Chapter Delegate

Each chapter sends one student member and one resident member to serve as chapter delegates. These delegates attend all business sessions, poll their state delegations about issues before the congresses and vote in the elections.

  • Dialogue With Your Peers

Discussion groups explore common interests and concerns about medical education, international health, underserved populations and many more hot topics. You have the opportunity to get a head start on discussion by joining the e-mail discussion list. 

  • Write Resolutions and Testify on Issues Important to You

A resolution writing center, equipped with computers and resources for researching resolutions will be available at the conference.    Final resolutions are voted on during the final business session. To vote on issues before the congress, you MUST be a member of the IAFP/AAFP.
