Each year, family medicine residency programs are invited to be participants in that year’s initiatives of the National Project on the Community Benefits of Family Medicine Residency Programs. Each of the National Project participants is a current year institutional member of the Coastal Research Group.
A 2007-08 initiative will be the development of regional “community benefits” reports, which will utilize a template being developed through the National Project. The first of these, being developed in cooperation with the Penn State University Hershey Medical School Department of Family Medicine, will center on the residency programs in Central Pennsylvania.
Simultaneously, plans for additional regional community impact reports following the Penn State template are being developed in cooperation with Oklahoma University’s Department of Family Medicine and Scripps Hospital Family Medicine in Chula Vista, California. These will help establish templates for other regions of the country.
The regional community impact reports synthesize various initiatives of the National Project. First, utilizing sophisticated Geographic Information Systems, displays will be presented of the location of the family medicine centers and other family medicine residency program community points of service. Socioeconomic information about the populations served by those service points also will be displayed,as well as the distribution of practice locations of the graduates of the residency programs in a region.
Second, utilizing information obtained from the Site Visit Surveys of individual family medicine residency programs on the range of services provided in their family medicine centers and other service points; descriptions will be made about the the impact of these services of all the family medicine educational and service initiatives in a region on the region’s “safety net”, on its physician workforce, and on its public health needs.
