What are Hot Topics webinars?
For the third consecutive year, the Family Medicine Education Consortium (FMEC) will offer Hot Topics in Family Medicine webinars. Faculty in family medicine residency programs present on an emerging and exciting topic in family medicine, while also spotlighting their residency programs and what makes them strong and unique.

Why participate?
Not only will you hear excellent presentations and learn from family medicine experts, but Hot Topics are an opportunity to hear more about some stellar family medicine residency programs, without going to a residency fair at a conference. Family medicine residents and faculty – learn more and hear from your peers! Medical students nationwide – sign up to learn more about family medicine and hear about these residency programs and their communities.

When are Hot Topics webinars?
FMEC’s Hot Topics will start in August and run through October 2022. Sessions will be held midweek at either 6 pm or 8 pm Eastern. The Hot Topics webinars are free, and registration is quick and easy. Watch for future emails with new topics and dates added.
