Family Medicine: Precepting Performance Improvement Program
The Precepting Performance Improvement Program (Precepting Program) allows academic units (Sponsors) to develop and oversee the completion of performance improvement (PI) projects that meet the ABFM Family Medicine Certification requirements. Approved Sponsors will be able to develop and oversee PI projects for teaching physicians without having to submit an application for each activity for ABFM review.
To receive ABFM PI credit for the Precepting Program, the teaching physician must meaningfully participate by:
- Completing at least 180 1:1 contact hours
- Participating in implementing the chosen intervention(s)—-the changes designed to improve the teaching process appropriate to the teaching physician’s work setting
- Reviewing project data—-including the pre-and post-data from the learner—-in accordance with the Sponsor’s project plan
- Completing an attestation appropriate to the teaching physician’s work setting
