The Forum is back! 

Plans are in the works for our “In Person” 2022 Family Medicine Clinical Forum. Let’s hope COVID-19 cooperates to allow us to bring you all together on April 22-24th. Updates coming soon! 

Thank you for attending our 2020 Forum!

The 2020 Family Medicine Virtual Clinical Forum brought together a mix of physicians, medical students, and other health professionals to learn about some of the most important issues of the day – the pandemic and vaccines, health care disparities, racism in medicine and social determinates of health. Ted O’Connell, MD moderated our first keynote session with a panel discussion titled Lessons, Silver Linings and Stories from COVID-19 where we heard about project Room Key, Career Sparks and Keepers of the House, hopeful stories of how people made positive impacts during an otherwise chaotic time in our history. Monica Hahn, MD and Stephen Richmond, MD delivered a powerful keynote address on equity and inclusion and then continued to engage with our learners through follow up sessions in December and January where attendees were encouraged to take steps to address racism in medicine. Mark Ghaly, MD, MPH, Secretary of California Health and Human Services provided learners with important recognition of their roles on the front lines of the pandemic. In addition, Rishi Manchanda, MD, reminded us of how important it is to look upstream to the social determinates of health to broaden the care of our patients and our communities.

Other sessions were offered along with engagement sessions like a mindful stress reduction session, Monkey Brain, Alpaca Tour, FM Fierce, a Scavenger Hunt and of course, the #DocsWhoRock virtual jam session.

"Thank you CAFP for having a #HealthEquity track at #FMforum20! Good resources for all regarding race conscious medicine and research."

"So many great tips and a practical and patient centered approach! #fmforum20"
Alex M. McDonald, MD CAQSM FAAFP

"Race-based medicine provides a false sense of health equity and undermines the health disparities engendered by racism. Our learning does not stop here. Next step: critical self-reflection. Such amazing speakers at #FMForum20!!"
Laura Murphy, DO
San Diego
"We're going to be called upon not to be heroes once or twice, but again and again in the coming weeks. And I want to figure out how to support you; it's going to be tough, and you are the ones carrying a huge load."
Secretary Mark Ghaly, MD
California Health and Human Services

Welcome to the 72nd Annual CAFP’s Family Medicine Clinical Forum. The California Academy of Family Physicians (CAFP) is the largest chapter of the American Academy of Family Physicians and is the ONLY organization solely dedicated to the family medicine specialty in California. We currently represent more than 11,000 members.

The Family Medicine Clinical Forum is CAFP’s largest CME meeting of the year and this year will be bigger and better than ever in a virtual environment! For our supporters, there will be new and exciting ways to connect with learners – and we expect record-breaking attendance this year.

2019 Forum

More than 260 physicians gathered in Monterey for two and a half days of excellent CME, networking, camaraderie, and all-around fun at CAFP’s 2019 Family Medicine Clinical Forum. The event included an all member reception, community service project, the CAFP Foundation’s 5K Fund Run, and optional workshops. Many of the sessions stressed the importance of physical activity and taking care of ourselves in order to continue to provide the best care for our patients. Early in the conference, Alex Mroszczyk-McDonald, MD challenged the group to “share out” on social media the terrific information and experiences of the Forum and reach 1 million impressions. We exceeded that goal and reached more than two million impressions! If you’ve followed #FMForum19 then you’ve seen what a rewarding experience the Forum was for everyone involved. If you were not able to join us, please mark the 2020 and 2021 dates in your calendars now!
