Academic Afternoons

Wednesday afternoons are protected for formal didactics.  Residency faculty, community attendings and resident physicians deliver engaging, evidence-based teaching geared toward clinical care for residency patients.  MFMR systematically updates its group didactics curriculum based on national guidelines and publications:

  • “Entrustable Professional Activities in Family Medicine”
    [J Grad Med Educ. 2013 Mar;5(1):112-8].
  • STFM Family Medicine Residency Curriculum Resources
  • AAFP Curriculum Guidelines
  • AOA/ACOFP’s “Basic Standards for Residency Training in Osteopathic Family Practice and Manipulative Treatment”
  • AOA’s “Competency-Based Evaluation for Residency Training Programs in Osteopathic Family Practice and Manipulative Treatment.”
  • ACGME’s CLER Pathways to Excellence

There are also regularly scheduled meetings focused on care in a patient-centered medical home:

  • Psychiatry Consults, in which residents and faculty present cases to a psychiatrist, who then gives recommendations and teaching
  • Prenatal Staffing, in which residents and faculty review current prenatal patients
  • Resident Balint, a group process of exploration and training in the doctor-patient relationship
  • Clinic All-Staff Meeting, clinic-wide meetings about program updates and quality improvement
  • Clinic Team Meetings, in which providers and support staff from each clinic team meet together to develop ways to improve core measures and outreach to patients
