Founded in 1967, the STFM comprises nearly 5,000 medical school professors, preceptors, residency program faculty, residency program directors and others involved in family medicine education.
This year, DFMCH faculty and residents led 17 educational sessions, including seminars, workshops, roundtables, lectures, panels and posters.
Topics included community engagement; curricular tools to support health equity and maternal-child care; medical student coaching; medication-assisted treatment for opioid use disorder; and optimizing the role of the medical assistant.
