Family Medicine Interest Group

The Family Medicine Interest Group is a group of medical students who share an interest in a career in the specialty of Family Medicine.


Many opportunities are available for leadership through FMIG at the local, state, and even national level, including:

  • FMIG offices, such as co-chair, secretary, treasurer, class representative, membership chair and committee chairs
  • Membership on AAFP committees (national level)
  • Membership on OAFP committees (state level)
  • Delegate roles at state, regional and national meeting


A one-time payment of $15 will cover membership in the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP), the Oregon Academy of Family Physicians (OAFP), and FMIG. In addition, for the entire four years of medical school, members receive the on-line American Family Physician (the clinical journal published by the AAFP) and are on the FMIG email list which keeps students informed of FMIG activities. Your check for $15 made out to FMIG can be left in Peggy O'Neill's box in TSO or sent to her by campus mail at Mail Code: FM.
