Family Med & Conferences?

The AAFP conference is in August, but it costs $165 to attend…

and my school basically makes the rules so that literally no one gets to go to conference, ever. They reject everyone who submits the pile of request paperwork.

I could still sneak away to the last day of the conference, since it’s close enough to drive and my bestie has vacation scheduled then and is willing to drive with me. 

So, what do my Medblrs say? Is it worth the cost when FM is so high on my list? Are conferences like this a good idea at the start of 4th year? wayfaringmd?
