Signature Program: Family Medicine Discovers

The AAFP Foundation’s new scientific program, in partnership with AAFP National Research Network, focuses on building a robust family medicine research infrastructure by cultivating scholarship and engagement among community family physicians.

Family Medicine Discovers Rapid Cycle Scientific Discovery and Innovation (FMD RapSDI) program seeks practicing family physicians with little or no research experience to generate new evidence and innovative models for “what works” in real-world primary care settings. FMD RapSDI is designed for anyone who is curious about answering a patient care-inspired question, clinical problem, or clinical conundrum, but hasn’t had the support to investigate.
