Research and Quality Improvement
Research and QI projects are mandated by ACGME and the program.
A two-week rotation in each year of residency is devoted to research. Each resident meets with the Director of Behavioral Science to develop a project and to understand the steps necessary to complete the project.
A medical librarian also spends time with the resident to review articles pertinent to the project.
Projects are initiated in the first year and an abstract is produced. In the second and third years projects are developed and a poster presentation of each project is presented to the medical center staff.
Projects are submitted for presentation at national conferences. If projects are accepted the program sends the resident(s) to those conference.
Residents’ projects have been accepted at the American College of Osteopathic Family Physicians (ACOFP) National Conference, American Medical Society for Sports Medicine (AMSSM) National Conference, ACOPF Future Leaders Conference and others.
