In a survey of more than 6,000 family medicine residents, 69% reported being extremely or moderately prepared to perform population health management (PHM). The study, which was recently published in Family Medicine, used data from the 2014 and 2015 American Board of Family Medicine Certification Examination registration questionnaire in which residents were asked to self-report their PHM preparedness.

Residents who were international medical graduates (IMG) were also more like to report being prepared to perform PHM than residents who graduated from U.S. medical schools. Nearly 37% of the residents who reported feeling prepared to perform PHM were IMGs. Of those who reported feeling unprepared, only about 27% were IMGs.
