1. Poster Contest. Active members (including fellows). residents and students are invited to submit posters at the KAFP Annual Meeting for presentation. $100 stipends are given to students & residents.  

2. Rural Family Medicine Practice & Research Program. Students between their first and second year of medical school are sent to rural areas across the state to learn about family medicine from local primary care doctors, and gather research data. Each year between 25- 35 medical students participate in the program. This program exposes first year students to the life of a rural family physician. Thank you to the volunteer faculty and directors of this program for making it happen: Dr. Mike Kennedy.

3. Family Medicine Interest Group grants. Grant funding is provided to help these student organizations with their activities. Creating increased student interest in family medicine, and assisting these student groups is a high priority for the Foundation.

5. The KAFP-F Hostetter Award. This award honors a senior medical student on each campus who has promoted the values of family medicine throughout their medical school career. The 2013 Wichita campus recipient is Jessica Leiker and the Kansas City campus recipient is Chad Stewart. We appreciate the generous contribution from the Hostetter estate that makes this annual award possible.

6. Kansas Career Opportunities Conferences. Both the Kansas City and Wichita medical school campus' provide an opportunity for students and residents to connect with Kansas communities at this conference.

7.  Faces in Family Medicine. This award winning project highlights various family physicians and the roles they play, and provides links to students as well.

8. Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH). Funding for learning collaboratives was supported to help Kansas Family Physicians as they learn about and grow toward becoming a PCMH.
