Academic Family Medicine Groups Launch New Educational Research Resource
Data Clearinghouse Intended for Residents, Faculty Engaged in Scholarly Activity
By News Staff
Data for the clearinghouse will be collected through surveys of family medicine department chairs, residency program directors, clerkship directors and behavioral science directors. Each survey will combine queries about core family medicine education information with specific questions submitted by CAFM members.
The first survey was sent out July 14, and the initial round of data is expected to be available by November. Specific topics covered in the inaugural survey are
- managing the early assessment of residents' clinical skills,
- physician workforce issues,
- an assessment of STFM's Shots program and
- oral health curricula in residencies.
