How do you keep up with changes in healthcare as a busy doctor? Email newsletters for primary care physicians are a great way to stay current with the latest news, research, and best practices.
Email newsletters for primary care physicians
The following three newsletters are free and curated for primary care doctors. The first is a daily e-newsletter, the second is weekly, and the third is monthly. Each is published by a reputable organization you already know and trust.
1. AMA Morning Rounds
AMA Morning Rounds delivers daily healthcare news straight to your inbox. The newsletter contains the most relevant information distilled from more than 3,000 major newspapers, magazines, and journals. It also includes highlights from the AMA and JAMA Network.
The AMA has several other email newsletters of interest to primary care physicians. You can sign up for a weekly or monthly roundup of important stories from Morning Rounds if a daily newsletter is too much. AMA also provides MedEd for students, the AMA Journal of Ethics, CPT updates, and more.
Go to AMA’s website and click “Subscribe/update preferences” to sign up for their email newsletters.
2. FPM’s Quick Tips & Insights
Family Practice Medicine’s free weekly e-newsletter is an excellent source of quick tips for primary care physicians. Expect a quick read with peer-reviewed advice for improving patient care, streamlining your day, and enhancing career satisfaction.
FPM’s newsletter focuses on succinct insights that you can immediately put to work. Recent topics include “Two ways to address difficult emotions in the exam room,” “Three myths about HIPAA,” and “What to do when your patient brings a list.”
