Exactly what is it?

b. Chronic Diseases

Do I have to do it? And will you tell me how?
This curriculum is a resource, not a requirement. It is, as Past President Scott Fields, MD, MHA, says, “the What, not the How.”
The next phase of this project will be addressing the “how.”
Who created it?
A task force (members below) created the document for STFM. It has been endorsed by the Council of Academic Family Medicine, the Association of Family Medicine Residency Directors, the Association of Departments of Family Medicine, North American Primary Care Research Group and the American Academy of Family Physicians.
The STFM Foundation provided funding for the creation of this curriculum.
