AAFP National Conference

August 1 - 3, 2024

Whether it be a home, a prosperous career, or a brighter future, building something great takes sturdy connections and a strong foundation. You’re at a point in your life where you can build in any direction you want, anything you envision. What you do now sets you up for success early and throughout your entire career.

UAFP offers scholarships to students and residents attending National Conference to help offset some of the costs. We will announce the application dates in Spring 2024.


Student Loan Repayment Programs

Doctors graduating from medical school can be saddled with several thousand dollars in student loan debt which can take several years - or decades - to pay off. There are several service-based programs that can help new physicians pay off a portion of or refinance their debt. There are many programs students in medical school can consider as they explore career options.
