Resident Scholar Events

The Clinical Scholars Program was established in 1996. The goal of this program is to foster critical thinking skills for primary care clinicians, specifically in the areas of evidence-based medicine and continuous quality improvement. This program is for 2nd and 3rd year family medicine residents to allow them the opportunity to explore research and /or quality improvement in Family Medicine.
