About the MSMS Resident-Fellow Section (RFS)

Thank you for visiting the webpage for the MSMS Resident and Fellow Section (RFS) and for your interest in our section. 

The RFS is open to all interns, residents, and fellows in Michigan and represents a valuable resource for all of us as it provides the strength that comes with numbers and an opportunity to make ourselves heard through the Michigan State Medical Society and the American Medical Association. 

The RFS represents you on issues you face each day whether related to patient care and access, advocacy issues, medicolegal issues, scope of practice issues, or issues related to training and graduate medical education. Additionally, the RFS is your best avenue to network, share ideas, meet with your colleagues from around the state, and have a voice in the policy-making bodies at both the state and federal levels. 

If you are not already a member, I urge you to join today! If you have any questions on how to join (or whether you are already a member through your training institution), please contact Joshua Richmond (MSMS-RFS staff liaison) or me. 

I wish you all the best in your training and look forward to meeting you soon.
