Family Medicine Residents Invited to Share Insight on Primary Care Workforce

The Robert Graham Center for Policy Studies, an independent branch of the American Academy of Family Physicians, and MAFP invite Family Medicine residents in Michigan to share their insight on the primary care workforce by completing a brief survey that should take no longer than five minutes. Click here to take the survey by June 1.

Answers from Family Medicine residents in Michigan will contribute to the creation of national policy that relates to the primary care workforce. Such policy can make a new physician's first job out of residency all the better, so participation in the survey is encouraged.

The survey is voluntary and anonymous. It seeks to understand what resources are available to residents in searching for post-residency employment, the type of employment that residents seek, and where residents might want to work. It is important that we understand both junior and senior resident decision making, so this survey is applicable to you!

Responses to the survey are not linked to an individual or training program, so they remain anonymous. It is anticipated that the results will be aggregated, analyzed, and used to advance comprehensive workforce policy analysis and advocacy.

We realize how busy residents are, but please take the time to contribute to work that seeks to help all Family Medicine residents. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the study’s principal investigator, Robert Baillieu, MD, at

Thank you in advance for your time.
