FMCC Resident Scholarship

The application period for 2015 Family Medicine Congressional Conference scholarships is now closed.

The AFMRD provides 10 family medicine residents with scholarships to participate in the Family Medicine Congressional Conference (FMCC). This conference educates participants on family medicine’s legislative priority issues, trains attendees on how to lobby on Capitol Hill, and allows participants to put these skills to use with federal legislators and their staff.

Scholarship recipients will be reimbursed up to $1,500 for approved FMCC travel, lodging, meals, and registration expenses.
