Instructions for Authors for Full Curriculum Submissions
Proposals are accepted on an ongoing basis, but only one author/authoring group is selected for each topic. As authors are assigned, topics are removed from the "unassigned" topic list.
Accepted curriculum will be copyrighted and become the property of the Society of Teachers of Family Medicine (STFM) and the Association of Family Medicine Residency Directors (AFMRD). Authors retain the right to modify and or/use the content within their program(s), but may not sell the curriculum or publish it on a website or academic resource.
Create an outline of the proposed learning session. You'll submit this for consideration before creating your curriculum. If you are submitting as a New Champion of an existing curriculum, please include "New Champion" in your submission title.
Proposals will be reviewed by an associate editor, using this scoring rubric. You should receive an emailed response within 2 months. Possible proposal responses:
- Rejection based on quality of proposal
- Accepted proposal
- Rejection due to closed topic but good proposal – resubmit for new topic
If your proposal/outline is accepted, you will then design the full learning session following the principles described here. Sample curriculum
