The IAFP Foundation promotes the growth of family medicine through a variety of membership, student and resident programs including continuing medical education conferences, the Family Medicine Interest Group program (FMIG), Rural Underserved Opportunity Program (RUOP) for first and second year medical students, the Idaho Premed Matching Program and Tar Wars.  The Foundation helps students and residents attend valuable national conferences to help nurture their interest in family medicine.  These opportunities provide for a valuable exchange of ideas with peers.  The IAFP Foundation works to support activities which maintain the educational excellence of family physicians throughout their practice experience.
