Academics

AFM residentThe Abington Family Medicine Residency is at its essence an academic program in a community hospital setting combining the rigor and intellectual excitement of academic medicine with the joy of taking care of patients in a community setting. Interested residents work with experienced faculty in contributing to the medical literature and continuing medical education activities on a regional and a national basis. 

Recent projects that residents have contributed to include traditional publications such as book chapters, journal articles, and scientific meeting lectures as well as new media including online CME and PDA. Residents have presented at regional meetings for organizations including American Academy of Family Physicians, American Medical Society for Sports Medicine, Family Medicine Education Consortium, and Pennsylvania Academy of Family Physicians.

AFM residentsThere are regular and ongoing opportunities to be involved with scholarly work at Abington Family Medicine. We believe in scholarly projects that are meaningful and done at a high enough quality to warrant publication. Diving deep into a topic is intellectually stimulating and seeing your name in print is fun. The range of scholarly work produced in our program includes guideline reviews, general review articles, real-world data analysis, and book chapters as well as online educational programs.
