The Group on Medical Student Education's mission is to provide for the organization, collaboration, and representation of all medical student educators in promoting the advancement of family medicine. The group specifically works to (1) create a network for collaboration, liaison, professional development, and mutual support for medical student educators, (2) provide liaison, consultation, and expertise to appropriate organizations and institutions, and (3) it will strive to develop a repository of validated sources and information to enhance the administrative, educational, and research goals of medical student educators.
The Steering Committee of the Group on Medical Student Education will oversee, coordinate, and support the activities of the Group on Medical Student Education and will serve as a resource to STFM on medical student issues. Three members of the Steering Committee are elected each ‧year by the group membership and serve a term of 3 years. The Steering Committee currently oversees three working groups: writing, research/survey, and communications.
The FM-PDN listserve is restricted to directors of medical student education; however, directors may nominate 1-2 additional individuals from their institutions to participate in the FM-PDN listserve. To subscribe: send an e-mail message to Vince WinklerPrins, MD at email@example.com
