Faculty members, Emily Onello, MD and James Boulger, PhD with Patrick Bright, MA, are among the authors recently selected by the Society of Teachers of Family Medicine (STFM) for the 2021 Research Paper of the Year. 

Together with first author, Mark Deutchman, MD, a professor in the Department of Family Medicine at the University of Colorado Medical School, the multi-collaboration study, Contributions of U.S. Medical Schools to Primary Care (2003-2014): Determining and Predicting Who Really Goes Into Primary Care, was published in the Journal of Family Medicine, suggesting that U.S. medical schools overestimate the number of graduates who will enter the primary care workforce.

Their work will be acknowledged during an awards program hosted by STFM on Wednesday, May 5 at 8:00 pm ET/7 pm CT, at the virtual 2021 STFM Annual Spring Conference. 

This award recognizes a research paper published by an STFM member in a peer-reviewed journal between July 1, 2019, and June 30, 2020. The STFM Research Committee reviews the submissions and bases the award selection on the quality of the research and its impact.
