Family Medicine Midwest Scholarly Activity Collaborative (SAC) aims to connect residency programs across the Midwest. During this four-hour meeting we will introduce the concept of collaboratives, discuss the past and present of the SAC, introduce our first project – “Experiences with the First Year of Geographic and Preference Signalling Among Programs in the Midwest” – and reviewing our structure, mission and vision, and selecting leaders for the upcoming year. Dr. Rick Guthmann will present their experience with the STFM Family Medicine Learning Network Leadership Training. This meeting is appropriate for residency faculty and residents who are interested in quality improvement and scholarship. However, students are welcome to attend.
