Students, Residents, Fellows, and Physicians are invited to submit proposals for the Family Medicine Midwest Conference, September 29 - October 1, 2023 NIU Conference Center, Naperville, IL

All submissions will go through a blind peer-reviewed process overseen by the FMM Education Planning Committee. Notifications will be sent by email to the primary presenters in mid-July. 

Family Medicine Midwest is an excellent opportunity for medical professionals at all levels to learn from each other.  This conference not only provides an audience for you but also a great way to support the other presenters and take advantage of the education and networking opportunities available throughout the weekend. Online registration will open in the Summer of 2023! 

Presenters will be responsible for ALL expenses related to the conference preparation, travel, and participation(e.g. registration fees, hotel, travel, preparation of presentation materials, workshop supplies, etc.).  Speakers are required to register and pay for the full conference.   A 25% registration fee discount will be offered for all presenters and co-presenters.

Students are encouraged to apply for a scholarship to attend the conference if their university does not cover the cost of attending the conference.  Scholarships consist of a stipend that will cover conference registration and hotel accommodations if from out of town. Scholarships are not guaranteed for all students who are accepted as speakers.  The scholarship form will be available online in Summer 2023.

For students participating in a summer 2023 research project, education project or community health project, submit your abstract indicating that it is a work in progress. Additional Information on the conference, including the schedule of events, will be posted online soon. 

Please contact Sara Ortega at [email protected] with questions about the submission process. All submissions must be submitted electronically using the online call for abstracts form.  We look forward to receiving your submissions and to seeing you at the conference.
