We offer a variety of events: seminars and conferences, dinners, workshops, and more – throughout the year that may interest students considering areas of medicine. Being involved with FMIG provides educational and informational opportunities not provided through the traditional medical school curriculum, to assist students seeking residencies in Family Medicine, helps to assist you with opportunities to attend state and national conventions, provides the opportunity to build relationships with Family Medicine faculty and create a unity between FMIG colleagues.
If you are a BUSM student and are interested in joining the BUSM Family Medicine Interest Group please contact one of your FMIG student Co-Leaders at firstname.lastname@example.org or you may contact the Family Medicine Student Coordinator Florence Laforest (email@example.com). FMIG is open to all BUSM students interested in learning about the specialty of Family Medicine. Also visit the BUSM FMIG Blog!*There are no dues.
The FaMeS program (Family Medicine Student Track) provides support and early clinical experience to students at the BU School of Medicine who are interested in primary care. These students have the opportunity to participate in many extracurricular experiences that promote learning and community service (some examples are below).
In addition to the extracurricular opportunities, FaMeS students have the advantage of integrating several different curricular requirements so that they can have the ongoing support of faculty in the Family Medicine department. Family Medicine faculty members teach courses in all four years of medical school, and the FaMeS track allows students to experience strong Family Medicine support alongside the excellent subspecialty teaching at BU. The Family Medicine department at BU is committed to mentoring and supporting its FaMeS students. Even if you’re not sure what field of medicine you’ll choose, the FaMeS track is a great way to get consistent, early exposure to primary care. Please click Application form to learn about signing up for FaMeS, or email Elizabeth.Ferrenz@bmc.org for more information.

Family Medicine Scholars is a group of BUSM students who share common interests in Family Medicine, academic research, community development and leadership.
Our mission is to create an academic home where students have the opportunity to share new ideas about personal and professional development. We achieve this mission through academic and clinical activities which focus on competencies in 4 domain: Scholarly Activity, Leadership, Continuity of Clinical Activities and Mentorship. In doing so, we aim to graduate doctors who are well-rounded clinicians, leaders among the field of Family Medicine and strong community advocates who approach challenges in an effective and creative manner.
