Family medicine clerkships are struggling to obtain and retain quality clinical training sites. To help chapters address the shortages within their states, the Society of Teachers of Family Medicine is offering:

  • Precepting presentations at up to 9 chapter conferences, beginning in June 2021. STFM will provide a speaker and cover all/any expenses for speaker travel and honoraria. See attached session abstract.
  • Exhibits at up to 9 chapter conferences, beginning in June 2021. STFM will purchase an exhibit (in person or virtual) for chapter meetings that are hosting the precepting presentations.

SPONSOR ABFM PERFORMANCE IMPROVEMENT CREDIT

July 8, 2021 | Panelists: Annie Rutter, MD, MS, FAAFP; Ryan Biehle, MPH, MPA, CAE; Becky Wimmer; Fay Fulton, MHS; Kelley Withy, MD, PhD; Kathy Pabst, MBA, CAE

Most states are facing a looming physician shortage. Medical schools and AAFP chapters have implemented numerous creative approaches to support the clinical training of medical students. One of those approaches is incentivizing teaching through income tax credits for uncompensated precepting.

During this panel presentation sponsored by STFM, find out how AAFP chapters have been involved in passing legislation in their states and whether tax incentives have made an impact on the shortage of clinical training sites.
