Mississippi Academy of Family Physicians


Academy Ambassadors

From unpacking, loading, folding t-shirts to handling children’s activities, the Academy Ambassadors worked hard to make sure over 500 MAFP Annual Meeting attendees had a great time this past July.

As part of the program, medical students attend the MAFP Annual Convention, in exchange for their assistance with planning and putting on the event in Destin. MAFP chooses student applicants who are interested in family medicine and pays for their registration, hotel room and meals for the week.

Hattiesburg Clinic, Forrest General Family Medicine Residency, MEA Medical Clinics and North Mississippi Family Medicine Residency hosted lunches and dinners for the group. During the meeting, the students networked with practicing physicians and exhibitors and even had free time to have fun together!

Medical students apply each spring to be Ambassadors and applications for next summer are now available. A limited number of students are accepted each year, so apply early!
