Michigan Medical Student Externship

The intent of the Michigan Medical Student Externship Grant is to stimulate interest in selecting a career as a Michigan Family Physician and/or pursuing research opportunities in Family Medicine. The AAFP Foundation provides $1,250 in funding, which is then matched by Family Medicine Foundation of Michigan. The funding supports $2,000 for a medical student’s stipend and up to $500 for a mentor physician's participation as the externship host.

Interested medical schools who have identified a student and a mentor/preceptor should submit an application to Family Medicine Foundation of Michigan no later than April 1. If, after submitting your completed application, you do not receive an email from MAFP staff within 72 hours, please call 517.664.9086 to confirm receipt.

Please note: If the matching grand funds are not used in the award year they must be returned to the AAFP Foundation and Family Medicine Foundation of Michigan.
