This Give to the Max Day, let's GROW family medicine!
Help send the next generation of family doctors to the 2023 American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) National Conference of Family Medicine Residents and Medical Students in Kansas City, Missouri (July 27-29, 2023).
We have a goal to raise $36,000 to send 45 Minnesota medical students to the 2023 AAFP National Conference.
The correlation between the number of medical students who attend the National Conference and choose to go into family medicine is undeniable—86% of Minnesota medical students who attended the National Conference with the Minnesota Academy of Family Physicians (MAFP) since 2003 matched into family medicine.

Thanks to generous members and donors, the MAFP and MAFP Foundation have been helping to send students to the AAFP National Conference to nurture and develop interest in family medicine, increase the family medicine pipeline and grow the next generation of family medicine leaders for more than two decades.
Attending the AAFP National Conference, with the support of the MAFP, deepened my commitment to and excitement for family medicine. I would encourage all students with ANY interest in family medicine to consider attending! I participated in several interesting, engaging and career discerning workshops. There are opportunities to gain leadership and advocacy skills at a national level. I was able to network with residency programs from across the country and create significant connections. -Claire Donovan, med student, University of Minnesota
The conference was a valuable opportunity to meet residents and program directors in a less formal setting ahead of interview season. It validated and reinforced my commitment to family medicine and to staying in Minnesota. -Andrew Lyman-Buttler, med student, University of Minnesota
