HOT News at FPIN
Get results faster with an FPIN writing workshop!
For the first time ever, FPIN is offering scholarships to support funding for the onsite workshops we offer. A full scholarship will be awarded to ONE program in the amount of $5500 and 19 scholarships will be awarded in amount of $1000. These workshops are designed to help jumpstart scholarly activity at residency programs and WE’RE EXTENDING THE DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS (JULY 21, 2015)!
Benefits of an FPIN workshop:
- Faculty development opportunity and on-sight coaching from an FPIN faculty leader.
- Programs that publish manuscripts following the FPIN writing workshop model publish 56% faster than programs that implement FPIN scholarly projects without hands-on training workshops for faculty.
- FPIN published authors report a higher degree of satisfaction having had learned the foundational EBM concepts in the FPIN model of writing workshops.

Completed the FPIN Institute modules and looking to get started on your question or topic? This page is your home for signing up for your eMedRef, HelpDesk Answer or Clinical Inquiry.
eMedRef is FPIN’s introductory writing series designed to introduce authors into the writing and editorial process. PEPID is a company that produces many products, including Primary Care Plus (PCP), which allows the user portable access to all of eMedRef topics stored in the PEPID database. PEPID also includes a drug interaction calculator that is quickly searchable at the point of care.
HelpDesk Answers (HDAs) are brief, structured, evidence-based answers to clinical questions written by physicians for physicians. HDAs are 450 to 600 words, drawing from the best available recent evidence including: meta-analyses, evidence-based guidelines, or original research.
HDAs are peer reviewed and published in Evidence-Based Practice.
The Clinical Inquiry (CI) project is designed for faculty with protected time for writing. Faculty interested in writing a CI must first successfully write and publish two HelpDesk Answers before beginning a CI. This rigorous writing project takes about 40-50 hours over 9-12 months to complete. CI’s are published in The Journal of Family Practice, American Family Physician, and Evidence-Based Practice.
PURLs (Priority Updates from the Research Literature) distill the latest literature to those few articles that are relevant, practice-changing, and able to be implemented immediately.
The PURLS system was developed in a collaborative partnership of the FPIN and The Journal of Family Practice.
