It is an exciting time to be a family physician as health care reform and new models of care form a perfect storm for change in our health care system. As students and residents, you represent the future of family medicine and your leadership and advocacy will ensure great success for the specialty in the future.
Join the discussion while learning the real deal about family medicine at the 2013 Family Medicine Summit on Saturday, September 7, 2013 at the Hilton Los Angeles International Airport. The Family Medicine Summit is for medical students, residents and faculty mentors.
The focus of the Family Medicine Summit is to engage the next generation of family physicians in leadership, advocacy and education with interactive sessions that will have you mingling and socializing with your peers as you learn. Other discussions will help you build your professional network and enhance your clinical skills with procedural workshops.
Whether you are a resident interested in fostering relationships with your peers or a student with questions for residents and faculty, the 2013 Family Medicine Summit provides unparalleled networking opportunities.
The Family Medicine Summit concludes with the popular California Family Medicine Residency Fair. This annual event is a rare opportunity for students to talk to current residents and program directors from nearly every residency program in California. Not only is the residency fair a way for you to familiarize yourself with each program, but programs use the fair as a recruitment tool. Family medicine residency programs are always on the lookout for promising medical students. If you are a current medical student, this opportunity and exposure is unparalleled and cannot be missed.
Registration details will be posted in the Spring of 2013. If you have any questions, please contact CAFP Student and Resident Affairs Coordinator Cody Mitcheltree at firstname.lastname@example.org.
See you in LA!
