What people are saying!

"I was lucky to attend Family Medicine Midwest for the first time during my first year in medical school, and the moment I walked in I felt I was surrounded by people who cared about the same things I cared about - I felt immediately at home. I returned to the conference two more times during medical school and I always felt like I got a lot out of the conferences, and left with the strong sense of belonging to a community of physicians who support one another, care deeply about their patients, and are doing amazing things to help their communities be healthier". Margaret Russell, Northwestern University Feinberg school of Medicine matched into Northwestern Family Medicine Residency Humboldt Park

"The Family Medicine Midwest conference was a great opportunity to see many liked minded individuals and hearing about their passion for advocating preventive medicine and providing great care for all patients. There are many opportunities available in family medicine that are not just in the clinical field; for example, one can participate in local and national healthcare reforms by attending conferences and contacting our state representatives on certain healthcare policies or one can conduct research that impacts our patients’ lives. I believe the conference is a great way to introduce family medicine to first and second year medical students who want to learn more about primary care."
