New Opportunity to Receive American Board of Family Medicine Performance Improvement Credit for Teaching

UNC-Chapel Hill has been selected to pilot a program that offers ABFM Performance Improvement Credit (MOC Part IV) for the teaching of medical students, residents, and fellows.

The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill has been selected (by the American Board of Family Medicine [ABFM] and the Society of Teachers of Family Medicine [STFM]) to pilot a program that offers American Board of Family Medicine (ABFM) Performance Improvement Credit (MOC Part IV) for the teaching of medical students, residents, and fellows. This credit is available to ABFM Board Certified preceptors who provide personal instruction, training, and supervision to UNC-Chapel Hill’s medical students, residents, or fellows and who participate in a teaching improvement activity.

The pilot runs June through December of 2018. During this time, you can earn the ABFM-required credit by:

  • Completing at least 180 1:1 contact hours with our students, residents and fellows
  • Participating in an intervention to improve teaching skills. 
  • Reviewing and reflecting on the results of the intervention 
  • Completing an attestation

Interventions might include an online course, a review of videos pertaining to working with students in a clinical precepting setting, a faculty development workshop or other agreed-upon activities to enhance skills. Once you complete the teaching, the intervention, and have reviewed pre and post-data, we will submit the completion information to ABFM.
This pilot is being led by Kelly Bossenbroek Fedoriw, MD (Community Based Longitudinal Care Course Co-Director, Department of Family Medicine) and Kelly Evans, MD (Assistant Professor, Department of Family Medicine

If interested, please contact by May 15, 2018 to volunteer for this opportunity.

Please note that this is a small pilot and physicians will be selected to participate.
