Family Medicine Departments and Programs to Pilot STFM Telemedicine Curriculum

August 1, 2021 — Seventy-five departments and programs responded to an open call for applications for a pilot project to evaluate the effectiveness of a new telemedicine curriculum for medical students and residents. “We were super stoked by the response,” said Steven Lin, MD, Chair of the STFM task force that developed the curriculum. “The overwhelming number of applications shows there’s a dire need for education on delivering high-quality virtual care.”

Through a rigorous review process, with attention to diversity characteristics including geography, type of academic unit, and structure, STFM selected 15 medical schools and 15 family medicine residency programs to pilot the curriculum between September 1 and December 31 of this year. The curriculum includes five asynchronous modules that cover:

  • Intro to Telehealth
  • The Telehealth Encounter
  • Requirements for Telehealth
  • Access and Equity in Telehealth
  • Future of Telehealth

The modules will be made available to all STFM members in early September.
