If you want a hand in shaping the future of family medicine, the National Conference is the place for you. You will be surrounded by people who are just as passionate as  you about family medicine. Through the resident and student congresses, you will have the opportunity to get involved in taking a stand for family medicine, participate in the National Congress of Family Medicine Residents or National Congress of Student Members. Over 2,500 medical students attend the National Conference to find out what is happening across the nation. Opportunities to attend workshops, procedural skill courses, and sessions about applying to residency. You will also learn about the process of transitioning into practice from residency.

In addition to learning and making policy, fun-filled opportunities abound. There's the opening night party, an amusement park trip, the famous closing picnic, and the annual wellness run. There will be 2,000 interesting and exciting residents and students from across the country to meet.
