With infectious enthusiasm, Dr Margot Savoy, senior vice president of education for the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP), talks about the ongoing collaborative efforts of the family of family medicine organizations to support the educational needs of the entire family medicine community, whether with CME or other educational opportunities. Gleefully drawing on her experience as a medical student who “just wanted to be a real doctor,” Dr Savoy brings good humor into the journey so many have taken, whether as students and residents, or preceptors and faculty.
