How do you keep up with changes in healthcare when you’re a busy clinician? Email newsletters for primary care physicians are a great way to stay current with the latest news, research, and medical 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. All three newsletters are published by reputable organizations you 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 also sign up for a weekly or monthly roundup of essential stories from Morning Rounds if a daily newsletter is too much. If you like Morning Rounds, check out other AMA publications: 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 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 you can immediately put to work. Here are some recent topics:

  • “Two ways to address difficult emotions in the exam room”
  • “Three myths about HIPAA”
  • “The No. 1 question about team documentation” 

If those topics spark your interest, visit FPM’s website to sign up.

3. Clinical Updates from Mayo Clinic
