The Family Medicine Summit, set near LAX, launched in 2008 with a goal of preparing future family physicians to provide the best patient-centered care, learn and apply new models of care, and explore statewide training programs.
On Saturday, August 27, 2022, the CAFP Foundation will be hosting its 14th Summit for medical students and family medicine residents. This one-day event will bring together thought leaders in family medicine and feature can’t-miss conversations on workforce, networking opportunities and engaging learning experiences.
The Summit has always been fueled by the energy and excitement of our current and future family physicians. After two years of virtual programming, we are beyond thrilled to welcome you in-person. We hope to see you in L.A. this summer!
Register now! Check back soon for more information and the schedule.
