Call for Applications for a Health Systems Curriculum Task Force

Apply by August 31

July 29, 2020—STFM is now accepting applications for a small task force to develop resources to train family medicine educators and learners on the business of medicine. This is part of STFM's new initiative, chaired by Christine Arenson, MD, to position academic family medicine in health systems.

Specifically, this team will:

  • Identify or develop curriculum for residents that covers the ACGME requirements for systems-based practice
  • Develop online and in-person training for faculty on:
    • Health systems structure
    • Health systems finances
    • Working within a health system
    • Educating residents and students about health systems
    • Becoming a leader in a health system
    • Analyzing data for health systems
  • Identify opportunities to weave health systems' leadership training into STFM fellowships

This work will be done virtually between September 2020 and June 2021 (in-person training  may take place after that time frame).
