AWARDS & SCHOLARSHIPS

The AFMRD celebrates the accomplishments of program directors and their residents through a number of annual awards.

Our Program Director Recognition Award recognizes program directors for tenure, training, scholarly activity, peer development, professional development, and advocacy. You may nominate yourself for this award.

The Nikitas J. Zervanos Outstanding Program Director Award honors a program director who demonstrates leadership and advancement of the specialty, is a mentor to residents and medical students, and provides service to the community and to family medicine organizations. The recipient of this award is named by the AFMRD and the American Academy of Family Physicians.

Each year, the AFMRD provides residency programs the opportunity to select worthy residents to receive the AFMRD Resident Award for Scholarship and the AFMRD Resident Award for Advocacy.

The AFMRD also encourages residents and members to become active in advocacy by annually providing scholarships to the AAFP's Family Medicine Advocacy Summit.

Fellows are also sponsored by the AFMRD for AAFP's Health Equity Fellowship.
