Stay Informed

Getting the information you need (when and how you want it) about state and national happenings impacting the practice of family medicine, advocacy and government relations, opportunities for earning CME credits, leadership positions, member news, networking events, career advancement, and resources are benefits of MAFP membership. We communicate need-to-know information via our Michigan Family Physician Update e-newsletter, Michigan Family Physician magazine, and social channels (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn).

Make Connections

Networking—the process of making connections and building relationships—is a key benefit of MAFP membership for which there is no price tag. Through networking you can gain advice, contacts, mentors, support, and career advancement insight. Plus, since AAFP and MAFP membership is unified, establishing connections locally and nationally is made easy. The Academy offers virtual and in-person networking opportunities through events, webinars, and member interest groups.
