CAFM Educational Research Alliance (CERA)

Call for Proposals for a CERA Survey of Program Directors

Deadline for applications is June 9, 11:59 pm Eastern time

CERA, the CAFM Educational Research Alliance, is now accepting proposals for questions for a survey of family medicine program directors.

The survey will collect demographic information in addition to submitted questions. Priority will be given to proposals that are likely to result in high-quality, peer-reviewed publications. Read more about what you need to know before applying.

The survey will be conducted in fall of 2020. Researchers whose questions are included in the survey will have exclusive access to their portion of the survey results for 90 days. After the 90 days, the data will be added to the CERA data repository.

Proposals will be accepted from members of the Society of Teachers of Family Medicine, Association of Family Medicine Residency Directors, Association of Departments of Family Medicine and/or North American Primary Care Research Group. You must have an STFM, ADFM, or NAPCRG account to log into the submission system (AFMRD members can create a free account).

Once projects have been approved, an experienced research mentor will join each project team to help refine questions, facilitate analysis, and prepare and submit manuscripts. Because of their extensive involvement, mentors will be included as authors on published papers/presentations.
