SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Information Collection Request Title: Primary Care Faculty Development Initiative.

OMB No. 0915-xxxx--New.

Abstract: HRSA's Bureau of Health Professions, Division of Medicine and Dentistry, has contracted with Oregon Health and Science University (OHSU), contract HHSH250201200023C, to conduct the planning, execution, and evaluation of a nationally based, longitudinal Primary Care Faculty Development Initiative (PCFDI) demonstration project. OHSU has developed web-based survey instruments which will be used to evaluate the effectiveness of the planned curriculum and its implementation and to make recommendations to improve teaching and competency assessment in primary care educational activities. The two web-based surveys are Irvine's Leadership Behavior Survey and the Faculty Skill & Program Feasibility Survey. The objectives of the survey instruments are to assess the feasibility and acceptability of an inter-disciplinary faculty development pilot program targeting primary care physicians, to measure the leadership skills of PCFDI faculty participants, and to assess the initial impact of faculty receiving training from an inter-

disciplinary faculty development pilot program on their perception of skill development in the core content areas of leadership, change management, teamwork, panel or population management, competency assessment, and clinical microsystems.

Burden Statement: Burden in this context means the time expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, disclose or provide the information requested. This includes the time needed to review instructions; to develop, acquire, install and utilize technology and systems for the purpose of collecting, validating and verifying information, processing and maintaining information, and disclosing and providing information; to train personnel and to be able to respond to a collection of information; to search data sources; to complete and review the collection of information; and to transmit or otherwise disclose the information. The total annual burden hours estimated for this ICR are summarized in the table below.
