LAFP Student & Resident Conference
August 4 - 5, 2017
The Roosevelt Hotel
New Orleans, LA



Escape for the weekend to New Orleans and enjoy the company of medical students, family medicine residents, and family physicians. The retreat is a day and half of activities developed by your peers featuring workshops, networking opportunities and the chance to mingle with practicing family physicians who will lead seminars and share their personal experiences about life and career as a family physician. You will explore current issues in medicine, build clinical skills and connect with peers.

Save the date so you don't miss out on what promises to be one of the best conferences you'll attend this year. New for the 2017 Resident and Student Conference is a Poster Competition and Reception. Accepted entries will be displayed in the exhibit hall August 3-6, 2017. You will have the opportunity to discuss your poster during a reception on the evening of Friday, August 4, and the final judging will take place on Saturday, August 5. Prizes will be awarded for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place. You can learn more about the Poster Competition by clicking here.

Be sure to attend to plan to attend all the sessions on Saturday, August 5. You will hear from the President of AAFP, John Meigs, Jr., MD, FAAFP, attend sessions to develop your leadership skills, and enhance your clinical knowledge. End Saturday by attending the LAFP Membership Social offering you more time to network with family physician, residents and students from across Louisiana. We hope your GREAT ESCAPE leaves you with important connections and re-energizes your passion for Family Medicine.
