    In this episode, NCAFP Communications and Membership Manager Kevin LaTorre speaks with Dr. Maureen Murphy, Dr. Macy Osborn, and Dr. Beat Steiner about the professional and personal benefits of the mentorship that family physicians receive from one another.  These mentor-to-mentee relationships can provide instruction, support, and companionship that physicians of every age and stage need for their work and their health. Since our work at the Academy includes helping physicians sustain their patient care and wellbeing, we encourage and foster mentorship among our physician members as a key support for one another. The episode includes the lessons and rewards of mentorship for Family Medicine, as these family physicians practice and enjoy them.

    NCFM Today - Season 4 - Episode 4 - Precepting for the Future of Family Medicine

    NCFM Today - Season 4 - Episode 4 - Precepting for the Future of Family Medicine

     One of the greatest parts of our work at the Academy is connecting medical students with preceptors and mentors in an effort to best prepare them for life as a family physician. That process can take years and great support from our members, so we highly value and appreciate our members who are called to this role, and hope to open doors for more physicians to do so!

    Preceptors are physicians who invite medical students and residents into their clinics, so that they can learn to practice directly from seeing a real workday. These preceptors give their time, talents, and mentorship for the good of these students. It's a gift you can’t understate. 
    In today’s episode, you’ll hear about precepting directly from three preceptors: Dr. Elizabeth Ferruzzi, Dr. Landon Allen, and Dr. Sarah Asman Peiffer. They are all new physicians, who felt led to start precepting early in their careers.  Here are the lessons and rewards of precepting for Family Medicine, in these doctors’ own words!

    NCFM Today - Season 4 - Episode 3 - Making Credentialing Work for Family Medicine

    NCFM Today - Season 4 - Episode 3 - Making Credentialing Work for Family Medicine

    Family Medicine is a versatile specialty full of different skills and procedures, and so family doctors have the chance to branch out, diversify their work, and enjoy it. For many family physicians, it’s professionally satisfying to practice the full range of their specialty. 
    However, some procedures require additional credentialing. And you know that credentialing can be a difficult process. In today’s episode, you’ll hear about credentialing from three family physicians who have done it well: Dr. Landon Allen, Dr. Elizabeth Baltaro, and Dr. Puja Dalal. They work in different settings across different areas of the state, but they’ve all enhanced their practice with new credentials.

Great for NC Primary Care Clinicians

I am proud our state academy started a podcast. Simple and pertinent messaging for NC family physicians/ primary care clinicians. Easiest/ quickest way to stay updated on NCAFP topics.
