The AFMRD participates in the CAFM Educational Research Alliance (CERA), a resource designed to accomplish the following:
- Increase the quality and frequency of research and scholarly activity among members of CAFM organizations
- Improve the process for surveying constituents with better questions and fewer surveys
- Provide a clearinghouse of data that CAFM members and their residents can use to meet scholarship requirements
- Provide mentoring and education to junior researchers
The mission of CERA is to set within family medicine a standard for medical education research that is rigorous and generalizable; to provide mentoring and education to junior researchers; to facilitate collaboration between medical education researchers; and to guide the specialty by providing leadership and vision in the arena of medical education research.
CERA survey results are available to AFMRD members via the PD Toolbox.
