Instructions for Authors for Just-in-Time Curriculum Submissions
Just-in-Time Teaching allows for abbreviated educational teaching in a variety of settings, such as on inpatient rounds, in the ambulatory center, or when there is a break in the schedule. Curriculum should be designed to integrate into any educational setting, as needed.
The Just-in-Time Teaching topics are intended to augment or reinforce the information in the full-curriculum sessions. Authors can create just-in-time teaching at the same time they complete a full topic or they can contribute a Just in Time Teaching curriculum independent of the full topic.
- Targeted length: 15-20 minutes
- Format: brief case presentation; 5-10 slides including title slide and references
- Peer-review process: Proposals will be reviewed by the associate editor assigned that topic area. Submission authors will be notified by email within 2 months.
Your submission should be an outline of the proposed learning session. If the outline is accepted, you will then design the full learning session following the principles described here. Indicators of a quality proposal are described in this scoring rubric.
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.
