From July 25-27, family medicine proponents took over the downtown area that surrounds Kansas City's convention center for the AAFP National Conference of Family Medicine Residents and Medical Students.
Nearly 1,900 medical students and close to 1,300 residents attended this annual gathering, and a good many of those residents participated in the 2019 National Congress of Family Medicine Residents.
These ambitious young physicians wrote and discussed 27 measures aimed at enhancing their training and improving their ability to provide the best possible care for their patients.
Reference committee hearings were held on July 26, and the full resident congress voted on resolutions and substitute resolutions the following day. In keeping with the AAFP's policymaking process, adopted measures will be reviewed and referred, when applicable, to AAFP leaders for further consideration and action.
