The Massachusetts Academy of Family Physicians - Foundation is the philanthropic arm of the Massachusetts Academy of Family Physicians.
Dedicated to continuously providing funding for programs, projects and activities aimed at benefiting family medicine.
The Foundation and the Massachusetts Academy of Family Physicians (MassAFP) are partners in an ongoing effort to supply Massachusetts with a sufficient future workforce in Family Medicine. One way to address this issue is to have strong family medicine leaders in place to meet Massachusetts' future needs by engaging current students in the value of primary care and offering them opportunities to explore a career in family medicine.
Your support helps fund efforts to engage prospective family medicine students by providing scholarships to students to attend national conferences and educational activities, encouraging entrance by medical personnel into primary care.
Massachusetts medical students are learning about and solidifying their interest in family medicine by attending the AAFP National Conference for Family Medicine Residents and Medical Students. This annual event provides them opportunities to virtually attend workshops and procedure sessions, connect with hundreds of family medicine residencies, employers, and other organizations, learn leadership development skills, and network with students, residents, and physicians with common interests.
