FPIN Editorial Planning Capacity Policy

HelpDesk Answer Capacity Limits

To ensure that we always have the ability to staff our editorial team effectively and get important research disseminated in a timely manner, every publication project at FPIN has defined capacity limits. The calculation for the HelpDesk Answers project has been standardized for all programs. It can be figured by taking the PGY2 class size (according to ACGME accreditation status), dividing it by 3, and rounding up. (Example – If a program’s size is 5/5/5, then they would have the ability to write 2 HelpDesk Answers). This number will allow every program to write HelpDesk Answers with one class of residents with their faculty in triad writing groups and directly help to meet ACGME requirements for both faculty and residents.

If you are interested in applying to write additional HDAs, we request that you fill out this APPLICATION no later than June 15, 2022. 

NOTE:  A new form must be submitted EVERY academic year.
