Talk to your family med interest group and/or program and they should have a sense of med student scholarships for conferences as well as stipends or situations where they will pay for you to go. My med school was fairly generous with things like that.

I became a medical student board member for my state chapter of AAFP (elected position but there were 6 of us) and went to the state meeting for free every year plus the board meetings every quarter (free stay in sweet hotels) and they sent me to national aafp student and resident conference one year.
I knew many people who went to the national aafp conference every year, there are usually scholarships if you apply.

IFM - Institute for Functional Medicine. Sometimes you have to listen to some nonsense from an ND, but there is a lot of good information on how to treat many chronic conditions stemming from GI/microbiome issues, nutrition, etc.
