STFM is leading a multi-year interprofessional, interdisiciplinary initiative to address the shortage of high-quality clinical training sites for students.
- Decrease the percentage of primary care clerkship directors who report difficulty finding clinical preceptor sites
- Increase the percentage of students completing clerkships at high-functioning sites
Five tactic teams, under the direction of an Oversight Committee, are implementing projects to meet the aims.
This initiative stemmed from Family Medicine for America’s Health’s Workforce Education and Development Core Team’s task to identify, develop, and disseminate resources for community preceptors. The work is being funded by the Society of Teachers of Family Medicine, the American Board of Family Medicine Foundation, and the Physician Assistant Education Association.
