While unpacking, loading, selling, and handling children’s activities, the Academy Ambassadors work hard to make sure MAFP Annual Meeting attendees have a great time while in Sandestin.
As part of the Academy Ambassador 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 usually host lunches and dinners for the Ambassadors. During the meeting, the students network with practicing physicians and exhibitors and have free time to have fun together.
MAFP’s Annual Meeting will be July 15-19, 2023, at Baytowne Conference Center in Sandestin, FL. To apply to be an Academy Ambassador, you must be able to attend this meeting.
We are now accepting applications for July 2023. A limited number of students are accepted each year, so apply early. Application is below.
