Forty-One Locations Will Pilot the New Precepting Performance Improvement Program

April 30, 2018—Earlier this month, the Society of Teachers of Family Medicine and the American Board of Family Medicine (ABFM) kicked off a pilot program that offers Performance Improvement continuing certification credit to ABFM diplomates who provide personal instruction, training, and supervision to a medical student or resident and who participate in a teaching improvement activity.

“PI credit has been determined to be one of the more difficult things to obtain as a physician participating in continuing certification,” explains Ann Rutter, MD, MS, Preceptor Expansion Oversight Committee chair. “So we’re working to help make this easier for our community preceptors, but also our core faculty in both residency and medical student education.”

Forty-one academic units (Sponsors) were selected for the pilot, which will run through December 2018. Each Sponsor will develop and oversee the completion of performance improvement projects that meet the ABFM Family Medicine Certification requirements. This pilot program is a part of the Preceptor Expansion Initiative being led by STFM to address the shortage of clinical training sites for students.
