Outreach to GAFP Resident and Student Members for AAFP Commission and National Leadership Positions – July 20th deadline

To:       GAFP Resident and Student Members

From: Jeff Stone, MD, MHA, MBA, FAAFP, President

There are many ways that our Georgia family medicine residents and medical students can serve at a national level.   All of these opportunities requires the permission of your residency director, or school advisor and a nomination letter from the Georgia Chapter.

Only one GAFP resident and student will be nominated for each potential appointment.  Please review the options and positions available to you and submit an email to the GAFP (ffulton@gafp.org) no later than July 20th – to be considered for nomination.  Note that priority is given to residents and students who have served at the local/chapter level.

Please answer the following questions:

  1. Name/Year in Residency/Residency Program
  2. Please rank the commission or other appointment that you wish to be considered (up to 3)
  3. Please list the expertise you have to apply for these appointments.
  4. Do you have permission from your program to apply?

The Executive Committee will make their selection in early August and then you will have several weeks to get your full application, including a letter of support from the GAFP, submitted to the AAFP by the September 8th deadline.  Thank you for your review – we encourage you to apply
