The Association of Family Medicine Residency Directors (AFMRD) is working on the best way to accomplish all the business the organization had scheduled in conjunction with the AAFP’s conference. 

This year, all AFMRD activities usually held in conjunction with the AAFP’s PDW and RPS will be accomplished remotely.

Ballots need to be completed by midnight CT on April 9, 2020. If you are a Program Director member and do not receive an email with a link to the ballot by noon on Saturday, April 4, 2020 (please check spam and junk folders), email Kathleen at kingraham@aafp.org.

Quick Hitters

Voting members will also receive an email from afmrd@aafp.org via SurveyMonkey with a link to the 2020 AFMRD Quick Hitter questions. These questions are asked to better understand issues that impact AFMRD members. These ballots will be sent out shortly after the Virtual Voting Ballot. Responses will be shared with the AFMRD membership in a few weeks.

 The Annual Meeting has many other components and the AFMRD will be sharing these with all members online.

  • Program Director Recognition Awards
  • Year in Review
  • Recognition of volunteers
  • Financial Report
  • 30th Anniversary of AFMRD
  • 50-year programs recognition

  • Graduate Survey - plan in place to have this meeting at the original time (April 3rd at 12:00 PM CDT), but to accomplish it online.
  • Length of Training
  • FM-NICCE

The National Institute for Program Director Development (NIPDD) is also creating ways to make sure this year’s class of Fellows can complete the program and be recognized for all their hard work. NIPDD activities have been postponed. Plans will be announced at a later date for processes to complete the program.  

Stay tuned as more and more information will be coming soon. 

Thank you all for your patience and for continuing to make AFMRD a vibrant community.
