Research is crucial for identifying evidence-based practices in primary care and other healthcare settings to improve patient health outcomes. The Research Program exists for the purpose of generating high-quality original research among department faculty and to teach research and scholarly activity skills to departmental faculty, fellows, residents, and students.
In order to promote these activities, the following objectives have been identified:
- Conduct clinical research in our network of seven ambulatory clinics and two inpatient services
- Provide support and guidance to faculty concerning the design and analysis of studies
- Assist with the editing and preparation of grants, scientific presentations, manuscripts and research protocols
- Assist with the design and implementation of quality improvement projects
- Promote student, resident, and fellow involvement in scholarly activity and presentations
- Increase peer-reviewed publications
- Conduct monthly research forums
