Collaborative Scholarship Intensive (CSI)
I really loved the course and learned a ton. So glad to learn that this is not just about writing in one's cubicle by oneself.
—What our faculty say
Collaborative Scholarship Intensive (CSI) is a course focused on helping our academic faculty learn how to merge the clinical, educational, and research elements of manuscript development and publishing scholarly work.
The course has six full day sessions from September to February. At the end of the course, participants should have at least three scholarly projects added to their curriculum vitae.
Goals of CSI
- Increased knowledge of and skill in partnering with department research resources
- Improved efficiency and time management in completing all components related to scholarly activity
- Enhanced and more proficient writing ability
- Greater skill in initiating and managing collaborative work with colleagues
- Enhanced mentoring skills for doing research with residents and junior faculty
- Improved ability to respond to peer review and become a constructive peer reviewer
- Submit completed manuscript for peer review with a scientific journal
- Disseminate work by presenting at the annual Minnesota Academy of Family Physicians Innovation and Research Forum
CSI is open to University of Minnesota Department of Family Medicine and Community Health faculty members and their research collaborators within the University of Minnesota who are seeking instruction and technical assistance in streamlining their scholarly activities.
Attendance at all sessions is expected; thus, participants will need protected time away from clinical and teaching duties. Please arrange the time with your program director and complete the application form.
