AAFP

The first interactive app dedicated to helping students matching into family medicine is now available from the AAFP. The AAFP app will help students navigate the Match process and find residencies. The app allows students and other users to search for programs on a variety of filters, build a list of favorite programs, score programs, and check off Match tasks. Additional updates allowing note taking and other personalized actions will be released this summer.

To use this applet, first download the AAFP app or make sure all updates to an already installed version of the app have been made. Open the app, select “For Students,” and log in. The app is available for iOS and Android products.

Residency programs can update information about themselves by logging into the AAFP’s residency directory or calling the AAFP for assistance at 800-274-2237 or 913-906-6000.
