Introducing the new Family Practice Management website

Now it's easier than ever to access the tools and information you need to manage your patients, your practice, and your career.

We’re excited to introduce the new and improved Family Practice Management (FPM) website. More than a year in the making, the redesigned website offers an easy way to page through a recent issue of the journal, browse content on popular topics, and access key sections of the site such as the Toolbox and CME Quiz. Using responsive design, the site adjusts to your device, whether you’re reading on a desktop computer, tablet, or smartphone.

Here’s a quick tour of just some of the changes, starting at the FPM home page.

Key Changes

2. Click the star icon located at the top or bottom of a page to save that page to your Favorites. You’ll have easy access to your favorite pages every time you visit our site -- on any device.

3. Sign in for full access to the site, and check “keep me logged in” so you never have to log in again.

The Family Practice Management website has come a long way since we launched it in 1997.

The FPM website circa 1997.

What hasn’t changed is the quality and usefulness of the content. You can still access articles from those early days in our online archives (much of it as relevant today as when it was published), and we’re always adding new content filled with practical ideas to help you manage your patients, practice, and career.

We hope the latest iteration of our website serves you well. We promise to keep improving, so you’ll want to visit often. Be sure to check out our sister journal American Family Physician's website as well to see similar website enhancements.
