BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Leadership positions in academic medicine lack racial and gender diversity. In 2016, the Council of Academic Family Medicine (CAFM) established a Leadership Development Task Force to specifically address the lack of diversity among leadership in academic family medicine, particularly for underrepresented minorities and women. APPROACH: The task force was formed in August 2016 with members from each of the CAFM organizations representing diversity of race, gender, and academic position...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Finding scholarship opportunities is a common struggle for family medicine residency programs, especially community-based programs. Participation in practice-based research networks (PBRNs) has been suggested as one option, but little is known about resident engagement in PBRNs. This study explores how PBRNs are currently involving family medicine residency programs and whether there are additional opportunities for engagement. METHODS: We conducted a cross-sectional survey of 126 primary care PBRN directors regarding residency program involvement in PBRN governance and scholarly activity...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Precepting methods have significant impact on the financial viability of family medicine residency programs. Following an adverse event, four University of Minnesota Family Medicine residency clinics moved from using Medicare's Primary Care Exception (PCE) and licensure precepting (LP) to a "universal precepting" method in which preceptors see every patient face to face. Variation in the implementation of universal precepting created a natural experiment of its financial impact...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Burnout is considered a public health crisis among physicians and is related to poor quality of life, increased medical errors, and lower patient satisfaction. A recent literature review and conceptual model suggest that awareness of life meaning, or meaning salience, is related to improved stress and coping, and may also reduce experience of burnout. This study examined associations among meaning salience, burnout, fatigue, and quality of life among family medicine residency program directors...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Medical educators have expressed interest in using less didactic and more interactive formats for academic half-days (AHDs) in postgraduate residency training. We assessed the feasibility and effectiveness of implementing a practice-based small-group learning (PBSGL) process as one part of AHDs. METHODS: A mixed-methods approach was used. Over a two-year period, family medicine residents at the University of Calgary took part in PBSGL sessions during their AHDs, discussing clinical cases presented in evidence-based educational modules and reflecting on clinical experiences with the guidance of a trained peer facilitator...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Resident physicians experience a high level of stress. Mindfulness meditation has been shown to offer medical students and physicians a healthier way to relate to daily stressors. We developed and pilot tested a mindfulness training program and assessed its impact on resident physician burnout and resilience. METHODS: The residency program offered 17 family medicine residents a 10-hour mindfulness training over the course of 2 months in 2016...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Direct observation is a critical part of assessing learners' achievement of the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) Milestones and subcompetencies. Little research exists identifying the content of peer feedback among residents; this study explored the content of residents' peer assessments as they relate to ACGME Milestone subcompetencies in a family medicine residency program. METHODS: Using content from a mobile app-based observation tool (M3App), we examined resident peer observations recorded between June 2014 and November 2017, tabulating frequency of observation for each ACGME subcompetency and calculating the proportion of observations categorized under each subcompetency, as well as for each postgraduate year (PGY) class...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: In Kenya, little data exists on point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) training and use for family medicine physicians. In 2017, a 3-day POCUS workshop assembled most of the family medicine physicians in Kenya. Through surveys, we assessed how this workshop could affect the level of POCUS use, skill, and confidence in family medicine practitioners in the long term. METHODS: Structured surveys, distributed before, after, and 10 months postworkshop assessed demographics, POCUS use, barriers, comfort, and skills based on attendee self-assessment...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Oral human papillomavirus (HPV) infection is the main cause of oropharyngeal cancer. However, there is no assessment tool for early detection and prevention of oropharyngeal cancer in practice. The purpose of the study was to develop and validate a risk assessment tool to predict the presence of HPV associated with oropharyngeal cancer. METHODS: Using data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey 2011-2014, 6,978 US adults aged 18 to 59 years who were tested for oral HPV infection were included for this study...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Medical students often lack curricular offerings specific to the care of underserved populations. We surveyed first- and second-year students to inform the development of a 4-week course on the skills necessary to care and advocate for underserved populations within a primary care context. This study assessed students' interest in the potential course, interest in primary care (PC) and underserved care (UC), and factors that would make the course more or less interesting to students...
