Preceptor Expansion Initiative

Precepting Performance Improvement Pilot

STFM and the American Board of Family Medicine (ABFM) are in the final stages of a pilot program that offers Performance Improvement continuing certification credit (previously MOC Part IV) to ABFM diplomates who provide personal instruction, training, and supervision to a medical student or resident and who participate in a teaching improvement activity. The Precepting Performance Improvement Program allows academic units (Sponsors), who were selected through an application process, to develop and oversee the completion of performance improvement (PI) projects that meet the ABFM Family Medicine Certification requirements. 

The program will be modified as needed based on input from the pilot sites, then it made available to all academic units/preceptors in early 2019.

Resources for Pilot Sites
The following documents and links are for the 43 academic units selected for the pilot program.
