HelpDesk Answers Learning Path

"Practical, rewarding, and feasible" are three words that come to mind when describing the HelpDesk Answers project as a scholarly activity. The HelpDesk Answers Project introduces new and experienced authors alike to the challenging opportunities that coincide with answering the most relevant questions facing primary care physicians today. A mentor team comprised of the HDA Editor-in-Chief, HDA Deputy Editor, Peer Reviewer, assigned Faculty Co-Author, and FPIN staff offers a unique supportive foundation to authors writing HelpDesk Answers. The FPIN Institute provides authors with the hands-on learning tools needed to get started writing a HelpDesk Answer.
