Building Research Capacity (BRC)
“The building blocks of primary care research.”
BRC is a joint initiative between ADFM and NAPCRG in cooperation with STFM. BRC provides opportunities for all departments and residency programs to engage in a mutually beneficial learning community to leverage our strengths and resources for building research capacity.
BRC offers a Brief Consultation Service and a Curriculum for all interested departments and residency programs and an Extended Consultation Service on a limited basis.

"JOY IN PRACTICE" INITIATIVE
ADFM has taken on an effort to continue the learning and sharing of best practices that we started at this year’s Winter Meeting around ways to improve practice workflow, uptake of systems-level changes, personal resilience, etc. as ways to help ourselves and our teams find their way back to joy in practice. All Department Chairs, Administrators, faculty and departmental-related entities are welcome to participate.
The two main elements of this initiative are a listserve and a webinar series.
Those who are interested in joining the listserve can subscribe here: https://mailman1.u.washington.edu/mailman/listinfo/joyinpractice
The webinars are recorded and can be accessed here.
