Annals of Family Medicine, 05/17/2010
David A et al. – The Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) Family Medicine Review Committee (RC) has formally asked for input from the family of family medicine organizations for a major revision of program requirements for residency education in family medicine. In response to this, Council of Academic Family Medicine (CAFM) organizations implemented an RC task force. Each task force member organization solicited input from its individual members in order to develop a prioritized list of recommendations for the RC. Using a process of content analysis, 10 major themes were identified from all the responses received to the ADFM survey: Innovation, Flexibility, Outcomes, Maternity Care, Core Competencies, Interdisciplinary teams, Specific curricular emphases, Scholarship, Family medical centers, Pediatric Care.
