User's Guide to the Residency Accreditation Toolkit


This PDF booklet serves as a quick-start guide to highlight the most immediately useful sections and tools within the resource. Each page contains a brief overview of a topic covered by the toolkit and provides active links to take you straight to the most helpful pages of content within the resource.

The Society of Teachers of Family Medicine (STFM) assembled a task force of medical educators to create a single resource for information regarding accreditation and resident assessment for family medicine residency programs. The STFM Residency Accreditation Toolkit represents the culmination of these efforts.

This resource includes ready-to-use tools, faculty development goals, and “best practices” that can be shared between programs. The toolkit is now under the supervision of the STFM Graduate Medical Education Committee and is updated regularly. This user’s guide serves as an introduction and roadmap for programs looking to optimize their experience with the toolkit. We hope that the toolkit and this guide serve you well as you train the future of family medicine.
