Introduction Family medicine principles include responsibility for a community. We aim to implement an educational activity, the ‘Rallye Ressources’ (RR), which brings family medicine trainees to discover community- based organizations and explore collaboration with them in one Faculty of Medicine in France.

Methods Informed by the CARDA reporting guidelines, we will conduct a descriptive study to report on the organization and co-development of the RR, held annually in several family medicine groups of Université Laval and to be implemented in one Faculty of Medicine in France. The activity is designed to teach family medicine trainees the community sociodemographics within which they train and have them reflect on their responsibilities toward this community. Residents visit community organizations over the course of a day and have discussion with community-based agents. Data collection includes official documents from the organizations and the family medicine training program and interviews with 5 to 13 health professionals who organize the activities and self-administered questionnaires to 5–10 community-based agents to learn about barriers and enablers of the RR implementation. In France, we will be co-developing an adapted version of the RR with stakeholders. A pilot RR will be carried out and assessed in participating residents with self-administered questionnaires.

Preliminary Results The expected results are a better understanding of the organization and implementation process of the RR. Already, 3 participants have agreed to be interviewed and 5 have provided us with documents.

Discussion Co-development is an important part of this study as it ensures that the activity will be adapted to the local context.

Conclusion This study will provide a better understanding of how to improve training of family medicine residents in community dimensions.
