The STFM Annual Spring Conference is the nation’s most energized networking forum for family medicine educators, with nearly 400 educational and interactive seminars, lecture-discussions, papers, and poster presentations.
This year’s conference places special emphasis on leadership and advocacy in early careers – students, residents, and new faculty members – and upon the development of skills to lead institutional and national change. There are also many sessions on competency assessment in the continuum of medical education, across the entire spectrum from pre-medical studies to continuing professional development.
Learn from the success of your peers and exchange ideas with 1,500 of your family medicine colleagues.
The success of this year's conference is due in great part to your attendance and participation. This year's conference was the second largest ever with more than 1,300 attendees from 13 countries. We thank you for joining us at the 46th STFM Annual Spring Conference in Baltimore.
Your input is valuable to the presenters and to our Program and Research Committees. Follow the links to evaluate sessions you attended and to share with us your overall experience at the conference:

Greetings Friends and Colleagues,
Please mark your calendars today for our 2013 STFM Annual Spring Conference in Baltimore on May 1-5, 2013. The success of the conference depends upon the wide range of excellent presentations each year, and I encourage each of you to submit a proposal for a presentation. As my presidential theme, I will continue the theme of leadership and advocacy begun by Past President Jeri Hepworth, PhD. This year, we will place special emphasis on leadership and advocacy in early career – students, residents, and new faculty members, and upon the development of skills to lead institutional and national change. There will also be an emphasis on competency assessment in the continuum of medical education, across the entire spectrum from premedical studies to continuing professional development.
I look forward to joining you in Baltimore next Spring.
Jerry Kruse, MD, MSPH
