Scholarly Activities

Our faculty collaborate with residents in their research projects that they present each spring at the Family and Community Medicine Research Day; as well as other national and international conferences such as the Society of Teachers of Family Medicine annual meeting and the North American Primary Care Research Group. Residents complete quality improvement projects, either individually or as a group, as required by the Residency Review Committee's Special Essentials in Family Medicine. Features of research in the DFCM include opportunities to collaborate with multidisciplinary learners and interdisciplinary faculty, educational research at the medical student education and residency level, or serving on regional and global health teams conducting community-based participatory research.
