All residents must engage in scholarly activity. MFMR has developed a point-based system in which residents will receive scholarly activity points depending upon the difficulty or quality of a given project. Residents must complete 7 points to graduate.
Examples of scholarly activity:
Resident physicians regularly present case conferences drawing on their experiences in the areas of pediatrics, pediatric emergency medicine, obstetrics and ambulatory care. In their third year, resident physicians also lead an Evidence Club, which may be based on the content of their scholarly activity projects.
Each year, MFMR sends resident physicians to a number of conferences. In addition, residents are encouraged to submit posters and papers for presentation at other state, regional, national and international meetings.
Upper-level residents coach and supervise new interns in the areas of hospital systems, hospital EMRs, and application of evidence-based point of care medicine. The academics and supervision resident also helps develop the academic content for the morning report of our inpatient Family Medicine Teaching Service.
