AAFP Makes Website, Mobile App Enhancements
Better Site Search, More Roll Out This Month
June 16, 2022, 12:35 p.m. News Staff —You already know that AAFP.org has the best collection of up-to-date resources family physicians need for education, patient care, practice tools and more. Although feedback on the website (refreshed in August 2020) has been largely positive, we identified improvements that make accessing the tools and resources you need even easier. Beginning next week, look for:
- Streamlined residency directory: Students can search for residency programs by program title, hospital, or location, as well as filter results even further by community setting or program type. Details for each residency program can be found simply by clicking on the title of the residency program in the search results.
- Redesigned journals and publications: The journals and publications you rely on—American Family Physician, FPM and FP Essentials—now have a refreshed look. FP Essentials has also been redesigned for ease of navigation.
- Improved mobile app functionality: Finally, you also will see additional functionality within the AAFP mobile app. Although members already have the ability to access monthly editions of AFP, FPM and FP Essentials on the app, you will soon be able to complete and submit publication quizzes for CME credit via the app. Members can even complete quizzes while offline and submit answers when reconnected to the internet.
For those who take advantage of the AAFP’s audio products in the mobile app, you can now pause the audio or close the mobile app without hesitation. The next time you return to the audio product, you’ll be able to pick up right where you left off.
The AAFP website and mobile app continue to be an important source of information and resources for members, and the Academy will continue to invest in improving the member experience on those channels. If there are areas for improvement you’d like to share with the AAFP’s digital team, please leave them in the comments below or email them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
