California Residency Network



Ensuring that we train a sufficient number of family physicians and support them to practice in areas where they are needed most is essential to guarantee optimal health outcomes for California. In order to share best practices and coordinate their activities, in 2014, family medicine residency program directors voted to implement a membership fee to support the creation of a network of California-based family medicine residency programs. The CAFP Residency Network, or CRN, has four strategic priority areas: advocacy, faculty development, innovative curriculum, and scholarly activity.
 

Mission and Vision

Mission: The CAFP Residency Network (CRN) comprises family medicine residency leaders and educators advocating for the statewide advancement of family medicine through leadership development, improvement of resident education, faculty and pipeline development, promotion of wellness within the specialty, collaborative interdisciplinary innovation, continuous curricular improvement and legislative engagement.

Vision: Family medicine is a primary solution for population health. Family medicine residency programs provide inspired, broadly skilled, accessible and valuable physician leaders for California communities.
 

Values

CAFP Residency Network’s strategy and actions are guided by the following values:  
  • Collaborating across all levels of family medicine education
  • Community-building within CRN’s regions and across the state
  • Sharing CRN’s enthusiasm for family medicine and an enduring commitment to the health of our patients and communities
  • Sustainability and stewardship of resources as exemplified in our function and our shared actions
  • Mentorship to develop future leaders and teachers of family medicine
  • Developing a diverse, culturally competent pipeline of family physicians
  • Fostering physician well-being and work-life balance
  • Promoting the discipline of family medicine as a means to providing exceptional patient-centric health care.
  •  

    Membership

    All accredited California family medicine residency programs are eligible for membership in the CRN. Membership dues are based on the resident complement of the program. Any change in the membership dues shall be voted on by the full membership. For more information, or to join the CRN, please contact cafp@familydocs.org.

    CRN members have access to the following events and resources:
    • In-person meetings of CRN members coinciding with annual events including but not limited to the Song-Brown Healthcare Working Training Program funding meeting; CAFP’s Family Medicine Summit and AAFP’s Program Directors’ Workshop (PDW).
    • A review by qualified CAFP staff of the completeness of applications for Song-Brown Healthcare Working Training Program grants.
    • A monthly newsletter with valuable updates and resources related to each of the CRN’s strategic priority areas.
    • A message board in SPARK, CAFP's online community, for discussion with fellow CRN members.
    • An annual supplement of resident scholarly activity to help programs fulfill their ACGME obligations.
