MAFP Student Ambassador Program  

Michigan Academy of Family Physicians' Student Ambassador Program is designed to strengthen the relationship between the Academy and Michigan’s medical schools, nurture family medicine and Academy champions, and enhance communications. We want to know what’s happening at your medical school, and we want to be sure all students are connected to Academy resources and support. The goal is for one student at each medical school campus in the state to be appointed as a MAFP Student Ambassador.
