Volunteer With the ACFP

Get Engaged. Make a Difference.

Nothing About You Without You

The ACFP prides itself on the work it does—the programs and services it offers its members and the advocacy efforts it employs. All of this success can be attributed to the dedication and commitment of our volunteer members. Be it taking in a shadowing student during the summer or sitting on a planning committee, none of our work is possible without our members who step up and inform and advise our staff on programming.

Volunteer for Our Student Programs

We know that the more exposure a medical student has to family medicine practice, the more likely they are to choose family medicine as a first-choice specialty.

The ACFP offers a number of programs that provides students opportunities to learn more about what a career in family medicine has to offer including  the shadowing program, student info sessions, and clinical skills nights. Contact to be added to our volunteer list.
