FAMILY MEDICINE POP: a gathering of current and future family physicians from across California.

August 23-25, 2024


Register for POP!

We recognize that the most unexpected connections and discoveries happen when diverse people come together to discuss diverse topics. So, we've reimagined our annual events to bring you Family Medicine POP -- the convergence of the Clinical Forum (CAFP's continuing education conference) and the Summit (the Foundation's professional development event for students and residents).

You can expect the same great medical education, networking, and community service, as well as the energetic workshops, career guidance, keynotes, and Residency Recruitment Fair, to make 2024 POP! one conference you won't want to miss!
