Staying current with medical literature can be challenging for any physician, especially as they care for patients and balance countless other responsibilities. That’s why the American Board of Family Medicine (ABFM) is proud to announce the launch of the National Journal Club Pilot. This new service provides ABFM Diplomates access to the latest peer-reviewed articles and the ability to earn certification points.

Within the National Journal Club, physicians may reflect on what they read and demonstrate mastery of the content by correctly answering four assessment questions. If they complete 10 article assessments, Diplomates can earn 10 certification points and fulfill the minimum KSA requirement.

Reviewed and curated by a national committee of family medicine experts, the National Journal Club pilot features 40-45 articles that have been evaluated and ranked for relevancy, methodological rigor, and impact on practice.  This service is available at no additional charge and covers a variety of topics. Diplomates may log into their MyABFM Portfolio to get started.
