Haymarket Medical Education (HME) has partnered with the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) to expand available continuing education offerings for family physicians.

During the two-year exclusive partnership, HME will look to AAFP for insights and data points regarding the specific needs of family physicians, and the two organizations will jointly design cutting-edge education programs to address them. They will also collaborate on grant proposals seeking support to fund their education initiatives.

“The AAFP/HME partnership is a significant development in the world of continuing education, as it will deliver education to family physicians that has been developed with and sanctioned by the AAFP, while also providing a robust opportunity for independent medical education commercial supporters and other HME partners to support this important audience,” says Caroline Pardo, PhD, CHCP, FACEHP, General Manager for HME. “With 20% of total US medical office visits each year administered by family physicians, it’s critical these clinicians have access to high-quality, relevant education to provide their patients the best care.”

“The AAFP/HME partnership will augment the vital educational content that AAFP continues to provide to its members through its ongoing activities, such as the annual Family Medicine Experience [FMX] and the National Conference of Family Medicine Residents and Students, which AAFP will still manage separately from the partnership,” says Scott Scire, Vice President of Educational Strategy and Head of The Center for Collaborative Partnerships for HME. “HME will bring new, innovative, educational formats to the partnership.”
