Explore Best Practices in Family Medicine Residency Education

The family medicine educational community has certainly faced its share of challenges from COVID-19, but our community is resilient. We stick together and find solutions to the problem so that we can continue with our mission of training future physicians.

Don't let COVID keep you from learning with your colleagues, expanding your network and exploring best practices in family medicine residency education. Join family medicine faculty, program directors and program coordinators from across the country for the 2021 ACOFP Faculty Development and Program Directors' Workshop (FDPDW), which will take place completely virtually, February 5–7.

This year’s FDPDW will incorporate presentations focused on best practices that programs have successfully implemented during this time of COVID-19. Additionally, the conference will include a variety of topics that are important for meeting ACGME Accreditation and Osteopathic Recognition requirements. Areas of concentration include faculty development, diversity and inclusion, teaching telemedicine, unconscious bias, and wellness for residents and faculty. We will also have presentations from the ACGME Family Medicine Review Committee, the ACGME Osteopathic Recognition Committee, the ACGME Milestones Committee, NBOME and AOBFP.

OMT will be featured through virtual workshops, as well as lively and interactive faculty development sessions for programs with MD and DO faculty with and without osteopathic recognition. The goal is to share techniques and philosophies that emphasize the whole resident and their training, in addition to the whole patient and their care.

The American College of Osteopathic Family Physicians (ACOFP) is accredited by the American Osteopathic Association to provide osteopathic continuing medical education for physicians. 
  • The American College of Osteopathic Family Physicians (ACOFP) designates this program for a maximum of 18 AOA Category 1-A credits and will report CME and specialty credits commensurate with the extent of the physician’s participation in this activity.
  • In addition, applications for CME credit will be filed with American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) for those physicians seeking CME credit through this mechanism.
