Medical students taking a tour of the UNC Family Medicine Center

The UNC-FMIG provides exploration and enrichment activities for medical students to highlight the need for primary care and the versatility of the specialty of family medicine. UNC has a nationally renowned program in family medicine and we provide a foundation for the students to interact and learn from the excellent family physicians and residents staff here. In addition we support community involvement activities in preventive medicine, medical skills enhancement, and leadership roles for students wishing to be involved in primary care. Furthermore we provide an opportunity to learn more about the opportunities available in the field of family medicine. By organizing various community projects, scheduling educational speakers, offering skill building sessions and attending conferences, our members acquire the qualities needed to become strong voices in policy and community leadership, as well as competent, compassionate physicians.
