TAFP’s Section on Special Constituencies meets twice a year at Interim Session and Annual Session to discuss matters important to the special constituents. Special constituencies include women, minorities, new physicians out of residency for seven years or less, international medical graduates, and GLBT physicians.

The National Conference of Constituency Leaders is AAFP’s annual leadership and policy development event for special constituencies, typically held in April in Kansas City. Spots are available for five members to represent TAFP at the national conference with a reimbursement limit of $1,000 per person. Additionally, TAFP awards scholarships to one third-year resident and one minority physician to attend. Delegates are chosen by a panel of TAFP members in late February, so watch TAFP news for a call for interested members. Interested in being a delegate? E-mail Jonathan Nelson at email@example.com with your CV and which constituency you’d like to represent.
