Translating Research into Practice
Partnering with residency programs to develop premier evidence-based medicine curricula
FPIN manuscripts are published by family physicians without pharma-based support. They are an opportunity for educational scholarship and improving EBM teaching skills through publication.
- Michele Roett, MD, MPH
FPIN is a great place to start for anyone who is interested in academic medicine, clinical writing, or clinical research, particularly since there is a wide range of time commitment and depth of research involved.

On behalf of our entire residency faculty, I want to thank you for the outstanding workshop you presented for our residency program. Informal feedback to me afterwards was very positive, and I am very much looking forward to our new resident rotation and the opportunity for our program to become regular contributors to the HelpDesk Answers.

“I am thrilled to be working with EBP, and the students love it! It is completely intoxicating to them to see their names as authors of these pieces. Thanks for your help!”

My eMedRef experience has been significantly rewarding. It has served to enhance my interaction with our students, provide an
academic activity for our faculty to support future promotion, and facilitate a publication in a format that requires a reasonable time commitment, in an otherwise very busy schedule.

Successes at Penn State
Each month third year medical students rotate through Penn State’s Primary Care program. Students were previously required to report on primary care topics during this rotation;
transitioning to another research-oriented project with a strong potential for publication was a great way to build on this foundation.
START WITH A PLAN!
At Research FMR, Corey begins by helping both faculty and resident authors to set realistic goals. Once these goals are achieved, as HDA Champion, he assists with finishing touches.
“FPIN has been a wonderful opportunity for professional growth. The Network provides an extremely supportive atmosphere for physicians to grow both as writers and as editors. It is an opportunity to practice critical appraisal of the literature and gain expertise in selected topics. I would highly recommend the FPIN network for anyone interested in expanding their editorial experience.”
