KAFP’s Faces in Family Medicine program (FIFM) is a mentorship program for medical students.
There are many faces of family medicine – rural, urban, suburban,
academic, hospitalist, ER – to share with medical students. Thank you to
the family physicians who represented different types of practice so
that the medical students could see the many faces in family medicine!
Over 40 interested medical students gathered for dinner and an
informal talk with 10 family physician leaders on Oct. 13, 2011 to
explore the many facets and faces of the specialty. In its third year,
Faces in Family Medicine (FIFM) is designed to showcase family
medicine’s attractions and versatility. The dinner meeting will be
followed with an opportunity for students to have a family physician
mentor during the rest of the school year. Thank you to Drs. Jen Brull,
Deb Clements, Shelly Gruenbacher, Mike Engelken, Lynn Fisher, Josh
Freeman, Chad Johanning, Mike Kennedy, Bob Moser, and Belinda Vail.
They participated and represented the specialty well! Many thanks to
Martha Schneider, Chris Wolff & Rachel Svaty, FMIG leaders, for
their able assistance as well. The mentors and mentees have been paired
and the mentor phase is in the beginning stages. Thanks to all who
volunteered to mentor!
