Annual Conference


The Annual Scientific Assembly is TNAFP’s largest event, where typically more than 350 people, including attendees, exhibitors and guests, convene to earn continuing medical education, conduct Academy business and network with their family medicine peers.

The conference is open to physicians, residents, medical students and other healthcare professionals, regardless of TNAFP member status, and typically draws attendees from multiple states in the Southeast and beyond.

The TNAFP conference this year was the best overall CME program I have ever attended. The speakers were great and the topics were timely and relevant. I learned several things that I plan to study further and help me in my practice with my patients. It was an amazing experience and value. I will be back next year and will look for more CME opportunities with TNAFP
