PRiMER

Peer-Reviewed Reports in Medical Education Research (PRiMER) is an open access scholarly journal of the Society of Teachers of Family Medicine and the STFM Resource Library. PRiMER publishes original research briefs relevant to education in family medicine and closely related areas. As a companion to other STFM journals, PRiMER is focused on medical education and health workforce policy. PRiMER fills a gap between the presentation of research results at conferences and the development of full-length articles that would be suitable for submission to traditional print journals, such as Family Medicine.
