The future of family medicine relies on our students. The ACFP works with dedicated physicians to help students learn more about Family Medicine as a career choice. ACFP is pleased to plan and present the following Student Initiatives:
Stop by the ACFP booth during the week of Student Orientation to meet and learn what the ACFP can do for you.
Student Information Sessions at the University of Alberta
Twice a year (October and April), the ACFP organizes a student-family physician meet and greet luncheon. The luncheon is a great opportunity for students to meet and speak with practicing family physicians. The informal setting is the perfect place for students to ask doctors the really tough questions. Keep an eye out for the email invitation to attend.
Our members have a long history of sharing their knowledge with keen students, like you. Don't miss this incredible opportunity when you shadow a family doctor around. Learn what her day is really like and get a sense of how you can affect people’s lives. Program invitations are sent to incoming medical students in conjunction with the students' acceptance packages for medical school.
