Each resident must complete scholarly activity projects during residency. Additionally they must participate in clinic wide quality improvement projects. In their intern year residents will complete a literature review project with the help of faculty members for publication with the Family Physician Inquiry Network (FPIN). Residents are also expected to complete case reports within small groups to be presented at local research forums. Residents may also conduct original research, write a review article or produce other published educational materials with the assistance of faculty.
