STFM: New Faculty Scholars Scholarship Webinars (https://www.stfm.org/nfswebinars)

The STFM New Faculty Scholars Scholarship Webinar series was developed as part of the STFM Foundation New Faculty Scholars Program, which develops leadership and scholarship skills in a cohort of early career faculty. The webinars were originally presented directly to the 2020-2021 New Faculty Scholars, but the entire series is now available to the STFM membership for free.  Nancy Pandhi, MD, MPH, PhD, as part of the Scholarly Coaching arm of the New Faculty Scholars, along with Suzanne Minor, MD, FAAFP, Foundation Trustee, developed and coordinated the webinar series to be relevant and inclusive across academic or community family practice settings and applicable regardless of prior experience with scholarship. Faculty leaders across the country generously provided the webinar content on the potential for and practical aspects of scholarship in an academic family medicine career. Click on the tabs below to view webinar recordings and resources.
