Leadership Opportunities

The Nebraska Academy of Family Physicians is here to support you through your residency, as a new physician, and throughout your family medicine career. Through conferences, scholarships and leadership opportunities, NAFP helps residents of family medicine access the resources they need to make their future practices great. As a member of NAFP, residents have the opportunity to participate in NAFP activities; network with the family physician community; and receive NAFP publications. In addition, leadership opportunities for residents exist to get involved in NAFP and the AAFP.
