Be an FMEC Leader – join a committee or project
The FMEC is committed to providing students, residents, and faculty in our region with volunteer opportunities that develop their skills, advance their new ideas, and create connections with other family medicine experts throughout the region. Read about opportunities below, and visit FMEC Volunteer Sign Up Form to express your interest.

  • Help plan future FMEC Annual Meetings: The Host Committee is mostly FMEC members local to the meeting; they pick the theme and plenary speakers and fundraise for the meeting. The Planning Committee reviews and rates program submissions to help assemble the educational program agenda.
  • Join committees that advance academic family medicine: Opportunities include Leadership/Mentorship, Medical Student Education, Faculty Development, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, and FMEC Journal Editors and Reviewers.
  • Help recognize outstanding work in family medicine by joining an award jury.
  • Get involved in an FMEC project. Current projects address integrative medicine, hereditary breast cancer, medical humanities, IMPLICIT (low-birthweight, 4th trimester care), and oral health/medical-dental collaboration.
