  • Family Medicine Interest Group

    Family Medicine Interest GroupĀ meetings are held on the first Wednesday of each month and are usually sponsored by community hospitals, local family physicians and others who are interested in encouraging students to pursue a career in family medicine.

    By providing lunch for FMIG meetings, these kind donations make it possible for the FMIG to use money generated by fund-raising efforts to send students to various conferences and to support philanthropic efforts. Students are also allowed to interact with representatives from the various sponsors, thus exposing them to opportunities in family medicine that are different from those found in an academic institution.

    On the second Wednesday of each month, FMIG officers meet to conduct the business of the chapter. Topics of discussion often include potential speakers and sponsors for monthly lunch meetings, service project ideas, clinical skills workshops and planning for the annual recruitment fair and banquet.

    Additional support for our meetings also comes from the Mississippi Academy of Family Physicians. In addition to being one of our lunch meeting sponsors, the Academy also sponsors a booth at the annual residency fair. A huge asset to our recruiting efforts, the MAFP pays the AAFP membership dues for each student who also joins FMIG. Officers also participate in the annual MAFP meeting in Destin, FL.
