You are the future of family medicine. The time, effort, and commitment you’re putting in now will shape the doctor you become. You have a chance to help shape others as well.
Leadership opportunities exist within the MDAFP and the AAFP through service on the board of directors, commissions, committees and forums.
By being an Academy leader, you will develop your organizational and communication skills, have the opportunity to network with family physicians from across the country, and have the chance to voice your opinion on key health care delivery and family medicine issues.
The mission of the Maryland Academy of Family Physicians is to support and promote Maryland Family Physicians in order to improve the health of our State’s patients, families and communities.
The MDAFP Board of Directors meetings are set annually and meet three times/year. An annual strategic planning meeting is held in conjunction with one of the board meetings.
The deadline for nominations each year is May 5. Residents and Students interested may self-nominate or anyone can provide a nomination by providing the name(s) and contact information for a resident or student you wish to nominate and include a brief reference statement via email.
Please send your nominations to the MDAFP. Nominees will be notified and asked to submit a statement of interest along and current CV.
