Sept. 16 Family Medicine Student Conference Registration is Open; Call for Residency Programs, Exhibitors, Volunteers, Sponsors

Family Medicine Foundation of Michigan, Michigan Academy of Family Physicians' philanthropic arm, is excited to share that registration for the 2023 Michigan Future of Family Medicine Conference (Saturday, Sept. 16, Novi) is open for medical student registration.

Through small group discussions about career options, hands-on clinical workshops, and time to talk with residency programs and other exhibitors, the conference provides opportunities to explore the breadth and depth of family medicine.

This year’s event provides more opportunities than ever for residency programs and family physicians to connect with medical students. Below is information about how you can get involved in the conference, with or without a residency program affiliation, to advance the future of family medicine. Click here for the Exhibit, Volunteer, and Sponsor Registration Form.


Reserve a booth for your program in the Residency Connection to talk with students during two hours of dedicated time. The timing of this conference is ideal to connect with fourth-year students as a “last look” before applications are available for your program to review beginning Sept. 27.

Or maybe you work with an organization that provides expertise, products, and/or services benefiting medical students. Exhibit booths are available for such organizations as well.

Lead a Small Group Discussion

Talk with small groups of students about your subspecialty or a special area of interest; we have identified 15 subspecialities to choose from.

Lead or Coach a Clinical Workshop

Serve as the lead instructor during three, 40-minute hands-on workshop sessions where medical students will learn and practice casting/splinting, suturing, or performing a variety of women’s health procedures. Lead instructors are responsible for providing the materials and leading the instructional portion of the workshop; coaches are responsible for assisting the lead instructor and helping students as they practice the procedure.


Sponsoring a meal, lanyards, giveaways, or the event app provides additional exposure for a residency program, practice, or other organization, while enabling Family Medicine Foundation of Michigan to keep student registration fees at a minimum and provide a robust learning and networking event.

Additionally, please share the sponsor and exhibitor opportunities with organizations/companies you know that would like to connect with medical students.
