For the third year in a row, 3RNet and The RTT Collaborative will collaborate to make a rural splash with Family Medicine students and medical residents at the 2018 American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) National Conference for Family Medicine Residents and Medical Students.
The AAFP National Conference is an annual event where, according to AAFP’s website, future Family Medicine physicians gather “to learn more about family medicine, explore residency programs, and connect with potential employers”.
3RNet and The RTT Collaborative again worked together to coordinate booth locations, together with a third partner, the Collaborative for Rural Primary Care Research, Education, and Practice (Rural PREP). Questions about one group are often asked at the other’s booth. Being in close proximity to one another has produced mutual benefits for staff and attendees alike. Together they represent a continuum in preparation, placement, and sustained success in rural practice.
“This is our biggest exhibiting event each year. Not only does it make good sense for us to work with our friends at The RTT Collaborative on this event, but we’ve heard good feedback from attendees, too. We’re looking forward to again working with the RTT Collaborative and seeing them in Kansas City!” said Mike Shimmens, 3RNet Executive Director and RTT Collaborative Board Member.
The RTT Collaborative, Rural PREP, and 3RNet will also provide support for the AAFP’s Rural Health Interest Group meeting, which is an opportunity for those who have an interest in family medicine and rural health to ask questions and learn more.
