FMX is the PREMIER event for family physicians and industry leaders to come together to advance the specialty of family medicine by bringing the best the AAFP has to offer in Education, Patient & Practice Solutions and Networking Opportunities. 

After COVID-19 derailed AAFP FMX scheduled for Chicago in 2020, this is our chance to reunite, regroup and regain all the opportunities of Family Medicine’s biggest annual event. FMX spans a weekend for the first time, so less time away from patients, and more time to enjoy the city.  

Registration includes up to 90 CME credits.
25 Live CME
40 E-Posters Enduring CME
25 On-Demand CME
