The establishment of hundreds of physician training programs in community settings resulted in a transformation in the training of primary care physicians. Among the changes were a marked increase in the number of accredited teaching hospitals producing comprehensively trained physicians and the establishment of postgraduate training components in a wide variety of settings that previously had never been involved in physician education.Family medicine residency programs are complex entities that require a physician to master a broad curriculum of medical and surgical skills in both inpatient and outpatient settings. The latter occurs in family medicine centers, offices or clinics where residents are trained under the supervision of experienced faculty.The family medicine centers incorporate an entire “system of care” for patients enrolled in the family medicine centers associated with the residency programs. Currently, there are over 540 family medicine residency programs throughout the United States, and an even larger number of family medicine centers.Family medicine centers become points of access to the health care system where individuals and families can enroll for comprehensive, continuous health care services. In communities throughout the nation, they provide a significant amount of primary care, incorporate social and behavioral services, and coordinate specialty care, either through direct provision on an inpatient or outpatient basis, or through referral to or co-management with sub-specialists.The National Workshops on the Community Benefits of Family Medicine Residency Programs are engaged in defining the interactions created between physician training and various community settings, particularly the benefits that accrue to those communities in which the training occurs. In Pittsburgh, the Sixth National Workshop will take place that will continue a multi-year research project whose objective will be the definition and description of these benefits.The Sixth National Workshop continues a series of inquiries into the underlying public purposes for the creation and funding of family practice residency programs. An outcome of the Sixth National Workshop will be a framework for determining the success of family medicine residency programs in achieving legislative goals and in meeting community needs.A result of the previous National Conferences is the development of a taxonomy of benefits that residency programs bring to their institution and settings. That taxonomy is the framework for on-site surveys currently being conducted of a participating group of “profiled residency programs”. The framework includes descriptions of the range of services of family medicine centers, and the access to care that such centers provide.One product resulting from the National Workshop and the subsequent study will be a formal description of community benefits in a format useful to policy makers, teachers of family medicine, and hospital and medical school administrators. A second product will be protocol to be used by others in defining the impact that other training programs are having on their communities.The Coastal Research Group, a non-profit 501(c)(3) tax exempt corporation is coordinating the formative stages of this research project. An outcome of the National Workshop will be the reported results of Community Benefit Surveys conducted on-site at 54 profiled family practice residency programs selected from among the institutional members of the Coastal Research Group. That subject group will become the basis for developing the draft of a comprehensive study of the impact of family medicine residency training on the communities in which the subject group is located.THE SIXTH NATIONAL WORKSHOP ON THE COMMUNITY BENEFITS OF FAMILY MEDICINE RESIDENCY PROGRAMSSunday, September 10, 2006 8:00 a.m.Coastal Research Group Annual MeetingAll Coastal Research Group members and National Workshop registrants welcome8:30 a.m.Sixth National Workshop First Day BeginsPerry A.
