Membership in SCAFP/AAFP Brings Benefits
Great Information on The Specialty - Not only will you receive great publications, you'll also get the award-winning American Family Physician Journal, Family Practice Management, and other communications tools from the AAFP. Many student members find these tools informative and valuable during medical school.
Leadership Development- There's no better way put your professional career on the fast track than with active involvement in your specialty's professional association. Involvement introduces valuable networking and learning opportunities, along with the chance to help shape the specialty for future students. Students and residents have the opportunity to serve both statewide and nationally with the AAFP.
Education and Networking - Academy membership helps to build lifetime relationships, but also lets you network with colleagues in family medicine. Through membership, residents discover a means to exchange ideas among other members, as well as opportunities to meet with family medicine decision makers. Combined together, membership equals relationship building and opportunity!
Scholarship & Funding Programs - The AAFP offers several programs that help residents and students offset the costs of their training and education - but you have to be a member to access them. There are also several opporunities that make traveling to national meetings attractive.
