STFM Hosts Instagram Competition to Highlight Recruitment of Medical Students

May 15, 2019—The Society of Teachers of Family Medicine is hosting an Instagram competition for residency programs to showcase the lives of family medicine residents at their program as a part of a medical student recruitment campaign.

The competition starts on May 15 and ends on July 15, 2019. To participate, residency programs should follow STFM on Instagram (@STFM_FM) use the hashtag #ThisIsFamMed and #TeachAndTransform in their Instagram posts. The posts should focus on recruiting medical students to the program by showcasing the professional and personal experiences they would gain by choosing that program. 

The winner will be determined by the total number of points. Each post is worth 10 points, each comment on that post is worth 2 points, and each like is worth 1 point. The winner will be announced on July 25th, at the start of the big AAFP National Conference, where more than 500 family medicine residency programs exhibit. The winner will be announced in a news release on the STFM website and appear in the STFM Messenger newsletter.
