Are you interested in being more involved with your Academy or receiving a scholarship to harness your leadership potential? Would you like to participate in a summer program to learn more about family medicine? If so, you are in the right spot!
Today’s medical students are the future of the specialty. The Ohio Academy of Family Physicians highly values the contributions made by medical students and recognizes the importance of training future leaders of medicine.
There are many ways to begin or continue your leadership journey in family medicine, specifically with the OAFP and the OAFP Foundation. If you’re interested in starting with committee work, there’s a spot for you.

The OAFP and the Foundation are here to help build you into the best leader you can be.
