Online Content to Replace In-Person Family Medicine Summit and Residency Fair

After careful consideration, the CAFP Foundation Board of Trustees recently decided to cancel the in-person Summit in Los Angeles, CA scheduled for August 29, 2020.

COVID-19 continues to significantly affect California’s medical schools and family medicine residency programs. It is neither safe nor practical to proceed with an in-person conference this year. This was a difficult decision to make. However, the safety and well-being of our members remains our top priority. 


What Now?

Though we are unable to gather in person this year, the California Academy of Family Physicians Foundation is excited to bring you Summit content that will help you on your academic and professional journey in Family Medicine. We’ll hit the topics you’ve requested from applying to residency and virtual interviewing to negotiating contracts and finance learning, and we'll curate resources that are relevant for California's future family physician workforce. The sessions will be both live webinars with interactive options and short 24/7 sessions you can watch at your leisure. Additional information will be available soon, so please stay tuned as we get these ready for you.



Q: Do I need to cancel my registration to receive a refund?

A: No. You will automatically receive a refund of your Summit registration fee. Please note: participants are responsible for cancelling their own travel arrangements.


Q: How will I receive my refund?

A: If your registration fee was paid by credit card, the refund will go back to the card used for payment. If you originally paid via check, a refund check will be issued automatically and mailed to the address on file. 


Q: I'm an exhibitor, what does this event cancellation mean to me?

A: All exhibitors who have paid will be contacted individually for the option of rolling over payments to next year's Summit in 2021.
