National Family Medicine Residency Graduate Reports

The ABFM has partnered with the Association of Family Medicine Residency Directors (AFMRD) to help residency programs meet their Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) program requirement to survey their graduates. These data enable educators to better understand key features of their graduates’ clinical practice, practice environment, and satisfaction with their training.  

The National Graduate Survey was launched in 2016 after a collaborative multi-stakeholder process and is administered to all board-certified family physicians three years out of residency.  Data are summarized at the residency level and program-specific reports are provided with national comparisons.  These data can  then be used  to make curricular changes as needed.  Collectively, this effort supports an overall enhancement of the quality of family medicine education.  National-level reports are available at the links below.
