At BMC, we’ve harnessed our family medicine department’s research and faculty expertise, and our residents’ and institution’s dedication to healthcare equity and quality, to implement an evidence-based scholarship program.
This three-year curriculum aims to assist residents in acquiring the tools they need to promote health equity and effect change in the communities, institutions and systems in which they work, via a mentored but self-directed scholarly project.
In the first year, residents conduct a month-long health-equity focused quality improvement project in their health center, integrated into ongoing health center quality initiatives. Starting in the second year, residents develop a mentored scholarly project, present updates of their work at monthly research in progress sessions, lead research-faculty mentored journal clubs, and attend skills-based scholarship workshops (e.g. survey design, literature review).
All residents are encouraged to present their work at scientific conferences. In the past year eight residents presented at STFM.
