Preventive medicine residency program directors are the heart of our profession. They provide the preventive medicine training that the next generation of aspiring physicians need to achieve, leading the way at the cutting edge of the practice.

The American College of Preventive Medicine (ACPM) supports PMR directors by connecting them with fellow directors in programs across the country to share educational resources and best practices, funding strategies, ideas for rotations, and more. ACPM also aids the development of course curricula, unique rotations, and several other areas of importance. Connect with our support system today!

Resources for Program Directors

ACPM is committed to supporting residency program directors in all facets of their careers. We’re changing the way PMR’s have access to resources so they can better administer their expertise at preventive medicine schools across the country. Our new PMR toolkit is now available, which takes an in-depth look at the steps to set up and run a successful preventive medicine residency program, from securing organizational support and funding, to making sure residents are well-placed in their careers upon graduation.
