San Diego Academy of Family Physicians

The San Diego Academy of Family Physicians strives to bring together and educate Family Medicine physicians as well as allowing a means of communication with their local peers. Our organization provides two or more CME programs during the year as well as fundraisers for a memorial scholarship provided to a UCSD second and fourth year medical student on an annual basis and a bi-annual newsletter. Our yearly 3 day symposium attracts hundreds of physicians from across the country as well as more than 45 exhibitors.

In addition, our board of directors, which consists of physicians from across San Diego, provides a training ground for those interested in serving as leaders in areas including advocacy and coordination of CME activities. These members then often go on to roles at the State and National Academy of Family Physicians level. The San Diego Academy of Family Physicians is a member-based organization. All Family Medicine physicians in San Diego County are eligible to join.
