American Board of Family Medicine (ABFM) is searching for board-certified family physicians to become members of a virtual network to provide general and issue-specific feedback that will help continually improve the certification process.
ABFM seeks interested Diplomates who are willing to provide feedback, perspective, and fresh ideas about a variety of issues, including changes being considered to improve and evolve certification activities; optimization of the new ABFM website; redesign of the Physician Portfolio; development of independent assessment items; opportunities for certification to support broad-scope, comprehensive practice; and consideration of new areas of focused practice designation.
Involvement in the ABFM Engagement Network will include periodically answering brief questions and short surveys that will provide the organization with valuable crowd-sourcing information to guide its work on evolving Family Medicine Certification.
Other benefits of participating include:
- The ability to Influence aspects of ABFM’s five-year strategic plan and provide information that can be used to inform Board of Director discussions and decisions
- Periodic invitations to attend optional, in-person feedback events such as regional or national focus groups
- Recognition opportunities through physician spotlight articles in ABFM’s Phoenix newsletter or on social media, and in state chapter publications, etc.
ABFM is interested in building an Engagement Network that includes physicians with diverse practice experiences, reflective of today's trends in practice, to learn about new ways to improve the certification process.
To learn more about what’s new at ABFM, you are invited to attend the 1-hour CME session on August 1, 1-2 pm, at the Michigan Family Medicine Conference & Expo at Shanty Creek Resort. Online registration remains open through July 31.
