• AAFP NRN Membership

    Thank you for your interest in the AAFP National Research Network (NRN). Members of the AAFP NRN are invited to participate in research at any level, from generating new ideas to co-authoring journals, and more. Your engagement will contribute to the advancement of family medicine through research.

    We are actively looking for primary care physicians to participate in a wide variety of research and quality improvement projects. Participation in the AAFP NRN is free of charge and the amount of involvement is left to each physician. Projects vary from brief survey research to more involved randomized control trials that incorporate changes into a practice.

    Criteria for Participation and Enrollment

    All clinicians interested in becoming a member need to:

    • Be affiliated with a primary care practice;
    • Complete the required enrollment and demographic materials; and
    • Be willing to participate in studies on a periodic basis.
