Students to the AAFP National Conference Campaign

The MassAFP – Foundation continued its focus on workforce development and Massachusetts's need for additional family physicians.

Now in its tenth year, the Students to National Conference campaign continues to grow and develop. 

This annual event provides them opportunities to attend workshops and procedure sessions, connect with hundreds of family medicine residencies, employers, learn leadership development skills, and network with students, residents, and physicians who have common interests.

Scholarship Award Information

All scholarships are made possible by the donations of family physicians across the state.

Scholarships will be awarded to medical school students interested in family medicine so they can attend the National Conference of Family Medicine Residents and Medical Students in July in Kansas City, MO. 

Scholarship Information

Overall, I had a great experience at National Conference and am very excited to start the residency application process feeling reinforced by my passion for family medicine.

Without the MassAFP scholarship, I would have not been able to make this trip and experience financially possible. I thank you very much for this opportunity. I had a wonderful, educational, and productive time at the national conference, and I am so thankful for your support. I will take all that I learned into my remaining time as a medical student, into the application cycle, and as a resident. was incredibly helpful to go see everything that Family Medicine has to offer. After the conference, I feel much more confident in what I am doing and on track to succeed in this field. 

Thank you so much for supporting my goal of applying for a Family Medicine residency by awarding me a scholarship to attend the National Conference by AAFP. I had such a wonderful experience...Attending the conference gave me a much better idea of the culture of each of the programs and gives me more confidence heading into application and interview season.

I had an absolute blast at the AAFP 2022 National Conference...I wouldn't have been able to attend this conference without the MassAFP Foundation's scholarship, and for that, I'm truly grateful. It's an honor to have been able to use those funds well and have really made an impact on my early career plans as a result. Thanks so much for your help!

I still remember every conversation I had with residents that made me feel extremely inspired and excited for the opportunity to possibly walk in their shoes soon. I feel privileged to have been able to engage in this opportunity and it wouldn't have been possible without MassAFP Foundation's support.
