Who we are

We are a group of family medicine research faculty that help other department faculty with scholarship and publishing.

What we are trying to accomplish

We help faculty in the following ways:

  • Move forward with scholarship and research
  • Achieve recognition in their academic setting
  • Feel comfortable in the research and scholarship aspects of faculty life

Our goals

  • Increase scholarly activity of department faculty
  • Increase faculty satisfaction with the scholarly aspects of their work
  • Improve faculty life and satisfaction in academic role

How we can help

Let us help determine your needs and build on your self-assessment in the scholarship area.

The mix of research and scholarship will vary among faculty. Some will engage more in research while others more in scholarship. Regardless, our services and resources serve both.

  • Finding collaborators
  • Research facilitators
    Experienced research staff members that offer faculty onsite support services at most of our clinic sites
