Family Medicine residents will complete at least one substantial scholarly activity during residency. Residents will be educated on research methodology, statistical analysis, and critical analysis of the medical literature.
Residents will be encouraged to develop their own scholarly activity projects, as well as to take an active role in scholarly activity being led by Family Medicine Program Faculty. In addition, they will be encouraged to complete poster and local presentations. Projects will be sought that lead to improving conditions for the local patient population. Focus will lie in improving the program and meeting the needs of the community. Plans are also in development for a UT partnership in which residents would have the opportunity to collaborate on projects across institutions on multi-site research projects.
