Family Medicine Interest Group

Kara Yutzy and Lisa Kellar, MD

The Family Medicine Interest Group (FMIG) is an organization that gives students a glimpse into family medicine and the many different career opportunities available. All medical students, whatever their interests, are encouraged to attend informational meetings, which are held monthly. Each month will have a "focus" which will be the central theme of the month — this theme covers the meeting, any procedural/skills labs or community service projects held that month.


Student membership in the AAFP and OAFP is free. Student are encouraged to get involved at the state and national level. As members of the American Academy of Family Physicians, students receive a journal by mail each month and are encouraged to get involved at the state and national level. The Ohio Academy of Family Physicians pays the annual membership fee for medical students. You can join anytime — just e-mail one of the copresidents, Kara Yutzy,, or Christen Johnson,, if you have any questions.


Thanks to the efforts of the student leaders and support from family medicine faculty, the FMIG improved the way it promotes family medicine to Boonshoft students during the 2014-2015 school year. The American Academy of Family Physicians noticed these efforts and awarded this FMIG with a Program of Excellence Award.
