Center for Healthy Communities & Research Workgroup (CHCR Workgroup)
The Center for Healthy Communities & Research Workgroup is comprised of faculty and staff interested in cultivating and fostering a research climate. The CHCR Workgroup meetings are open to all Department members, and welcomes beginning researchers as well as those more experienced with the research process. The group meets informally in a collegial atmosphere on a bi-monthly basis for review, discussion, and suggestion directed toward project enhancement and completion.
The CHCR Workgroup meets to review and provide constructive commentary regarding project ideas, study design, proposal development, and data collection. The Group is also responsible for approving the use of CPBR services and expenditures for mailing, statistical analysis, and editorial assistance. The CHCR Workgroup meets at noon on the 2nd and 4th Mondays of each month in the Department of Family & Community Medicine's Classroom located in the Curative building.
Open to all Department members, clinical or non-clinical, with an interest in fostering productive research.
Student Summer Research Program
Through the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, medical students are matched with a Family Medicine Department faculty member mentor to initiate, continue, or complete a research project of mutual interest. Various sources of funding are available on a competitive basis for these 8, 10, or 12 week summer research fellowships. This summer research program culminates with a student research forum and poster presentation in early fall.
