Training the Next Generation

The Research Program trains Family Medicine residents to develop their skills in pursuing systematic inquiry and data analysis for application to both scholarly activity and continuous quality improvement.

In support of this goal, the team works with PGY1 residents to develop formal case reports into both written reports and poster presentations. The team also works with PGY2 residents to develop and implement a quality improvement project. The team culminates the training of PGY3 residents will a two-week short course in literature review and analysis, and PGY3 residents work in  faculty-led teams to develop a scholarly project for publication and for presentation as posters and/or oral presentations.
